 Our Litter Picking Challenge

Our School Council and Year 5 Young Leaders have completed a litter picking challenges, which has continued into the new school year with more volunteers coming forward to take part in keeping our local environment litter free. We have been litter picking, at least once a fortnight, to help our environment and reduce the amount of litter locally. We have been working in the immediate area around school on Neville Street and Montgomery Street, Devonshire Street and the Ginnel Area.

Litter pickers from our Year 5 class can be seen here visiting the Skipton Wilderness area to do a litter pick and litter survey, just before Christmas.
