ST PAUL'S School in Wooburn Green has been going green, in more ways than one.

While children in the pre-school have moved into their new-look nursery, decorated by a jungle-style mural on the walls, children in the infant and junior school are being encouraged to eat their fruit and veg.

Linda Bryan, who runs the pre-school nursery, said: "Carol Mason, one of the mums, came in and organised it.

"I am very grateful for all they have done and they gave up their time one day and they also came in in the afternoons to complete it."

The mural of a jungle scene was a bit hit with the children.

She said: "They have made a very boring yellow wall very lively with pictures of animals large and small.

"There are tigers and giraffes and snakes as well as elephants and monkeys."

She added that the mural was in an area now used as a reading corner by the children.

Children also gave up fast food and sweets and ate fruit instead as part of a healthy eating week.

The pupils, at St Paul's School, Stratford Drive, in Wooburn Green, were given free fruit for each child by Waitrose as part of the school's healthy eating initiative.

The food was given on Friday, which is known at the school as 'no crisps day' with the supermarket also giving leaflets and posters emphasising the need for fruit and vegetables to be included in people's diets.

The school is also running a competition among its pupils to find healthy recipes.
