Whole School Litter Pick

This afternoon, the entire school, including parents/carers, teachers and children, went outside and cleared areas of the school from rubbish. This was due to the school parliament discussing their end of year goal where they would like to improve the local environment.

During an assembly, prior to the litter pick, school parliament members shared with the school, reasons why the environment is important and projects that will be happening in classes to support the school aim. A newsletter will be coming out next week with more details.

We would like to thank those parents and carers who took time to support our litter pick.

Below is the video, shared in assembly this afternoon.
