A SCHOOL in Worle is going green and having a new eco-friendly heating system installed.

St Martin's Junior School is having a complete overhaul of the old oil boilers which are being taken out and replaced with gas central heating and rooftop solar panels.

Work on the £146,000 project began earlier this year and staff at the school hope it will all be complete in October.

Teacher Joan McLellan said: "The boilers were quite ancient and not very efficient. We had problems last winter with them.

"The new system will only have steam emissions so no nasties will be going into the atmosphere. The school will be heated from the gas boilers, with the solar panels helping as well."

The work at the school is being carried out in partnership with North Somerset Council and contractors Delkia, which bid to do the project in an eco-friendly fashion.

Builders are working at St Martin's fitting the new gas boilers and the solar panels for the school roof which will be arriving next month.

If all the boiler work goes to plan, an official green energy switch-on will take place in early October.
