Pupils do bit to keep Hampton tidy

Evesham Editorial 24th Jul, 2018   0

YOUNGSTERS and staff from St Andrew’s CE School in Hampton did their bit to help clean up the local environment last week.

Their efforts were part of an Eco week where every child at the school took part in a variety of activities designed to make them feel part of a community both inside and outside the school.

Pupils spent two hours collecting dropped litter close to their school and also learned how litter was not only unsightly, but can be harmful to local wildlife. The litter pick also complemented the successful work of the school’s

Eco Council which organises pupil litter patrols, helping classmates to be responsible to care for their own school grounds.




Victoria Reilly, teacher and Eco Co-ordinator, said: “Well done to all the children and staff for their hard work – they couldn’t believe people would just throw litter on the ground a few feet away from a bin.”

Headteacher Andrea Bailey, said: “Educating children to respect the environment and recycle is important. We hope every child at St Andrew’s can share this message about looking after their community – don’t drop litter, keep the streets clean and recycle/reuse whenever you can.”
