A primary school has been inspired by the environment in its decoration of its GoGo Hare.

Rackheath Primary School is keen to get the message across that plastic is harmful to the oceans and animals.

The hare, sponsored by Shred Station, is covered in plastic bottle lids, representing the polluted ocean, and the hare is covered by a net with felt sea animals stuck on.

Donna Goddard, a teacher who runs the school council and eco-committee, helped decide the theme.

She said: “It is looking rather impressive. I would really like to show this off as much as possible so the message can go further.”

It will be one of a trail of leverets - young hares - decorated by schools and community groups in the Norwich area this summer.

This will be in addition to a GoGoHares trail of 50 hares being brought to Norwich by children’s charity Break and Wild in Art from June to September.
