For the whole day students worked tirelessly to clear the school grounds of litter and rubbish. They started off the day by taking all of the schools recycling (something we do each week in houses) and then tackled the main areas of the school. The hardest parts to clear were the bushes around the school boundary where rubbish had ended up due to the wind. Finally, they finished off the day by planting some new trees at the front of the school. It was a great effort by the schools Eco Committee and the difference is already visible.
