"It is with great pleasure that I can inform you that Rice lane Infant School has won the age 4-7 category of the Speaker's School Council Award 2011.
The judges were really impressed by the work of the Eco Stars. Congratulations!"
Eco Stars travelled to the Houses of Parliament to receive their Award. The Right Honourable, John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons, presented the Award to the Children. We were also supported by Steve Rotheram, MP for the Walton Constituency.
The Eco Starts travelled first class to London, courtesey of Virgin Trains. When arriving at the Houses of Parliament, the children took part in a sharing of good practice with the other schools who also won an award for their age group category.
Members of the Education Service, then took the children on a guided tour. We saw the House of Commons, the House of Lords and Big Ben.
The children then went into the Speaker's own private receivng rooms to have a buffet lunch to to receive the award.

Email recieved by a fellow train passenger:
I am writing to inform you that I had the pleasure of sharing a train carriage with a delegation of pupils from your school, who were on a trip to London to receive an environmental award at the Houses of Parliament I believe. I joined the train at Runcorn where the children who boarded at Liverpool had obviously settled down and were actively engaged in various activities. Although they were all obviously very excited, they remained very well behaved and were extremely polite when breakfast was served, all responding with a ‘please’ and ‘a thank you’ , they ,were an absolute credit to your school and great ambassadors for Liverpool
I hope that they made their appointment on time, despite the late arrival of the train at Euston, and they all enjoyed the wonderful experience.
People are all too quick to criticise and slow to praise, I hope you will convey my thoughts to those concerned and thank them for brightening up what is normally a very dull journey.
