Radyr Primary win Generation Green Makeover

Written by Cardiff Council on 15th September 2015

Pupils from Radyr Primary School danced their way to success in the action-packed Welsh final of the Generation Green competition, sponsored by British Gas. They fought off stiff competition from a rival school from North Wales to bag themselves first place, and an Energy makeover for the school worth £50,000!! 

For the first round of the competition, pupils were required to submit Eco Building designs for their school – some of which were highly commended by Generation Green. The final dances were then performed on special “Pavegen” tiles which measured energy output from the dancers, and overall style was then judged by Jordan and Perri from Diversity. Linda Bale, teacher at Radyr Primary School, said: “We can’t believe we’ve won the competition, I’m still in shock! Our children have loved Generation Green and enjoyed learning about energy efficiency. We can’t wait for the energy makeover to take place at our school.”
