As part of our value of belonging, we are encouraging our children to take care of their local environment. To support this, we are taking part in the ‘Great British Spring Clean’ which is a national campaign to encourage communities to take action to protect the environment and show pride in where they live. The campaign runs from 17th March—1st April and we would love you to join us.
The idea is that families go out together to try to collect a bag of litter. It could be from your street, your neighbourhood, your local park, the church yard or anywhere that you walk. You collect a bag of litter, but before you dispose of it you take a picture of you and your child with your full bag and send it to us either via email to email@example.com or via dojo to Mrs Harris. We will then put your pictures on our website and make a display in the hall.
As a school we need to make a pledge, stating how many bags of litter we think our school community can collect. If you and your family would like to help between now and 3rd April, please let us know how many bags of litter you could pledge to collect. We will then update our promise on the website.
Litter-picking is a simple action that anyone can do to make an immediate and visible difference to their area – 85% of those who took part in last year’s Great British Spring Clean reported that taking part made them feel more pride in their local area. 74% said it improved their mood too! Hopefully we can work together to make our community a nicer place and have a bit of fun too. For more information visit the website https://www.keepbritaintidy.org.
