Stagecoach helps pupils grow at Manley Park Primary

05 Jun 2014

Pupils at Manley Park Primary School have green fingers this week following a visit from leading local bus company, Stagecoach Manchester. 

As part of Stagecoach’s national Green Week, pupils at the school received a lesson on catching the bus and learnt about the environmental benefits of public transport. As part of the session, the pupils were given their own basil seed pots, helping them to learn about taking care of the environment at home and at school.

Stagecoach Manchester managing director, Christopher Bowles said: “Our annual Green Week is important to us as it allows us to engage with our customers and employees to promote green initiatives, while highlighting the lengths we go to minimise our impact on local environment. 

“We hope that we’ve inspired the children at Manley Park Primary School to take the bus when they travel with their families and take care of the local environment.”

Pete Cowley, teacher at Manley Park Primary School said: “The Stagecoach green transport lesson was fun and engaging for the pupils and it’s lovely that each child has their own seed pot to take home.

“Learning about the environment is a key part of our national curriculum and it’s fantastic to have support from a local company, to bring the message to life for our pupils.”

Following significant investment over 18 years Stagecoach Manchester now includes over 128 hybrid vehicles in the fleet, offering one of the greenest services in the country – helping to cut noise, pollution and congestion across Manchester’s roads.
