As part of their 'Active Citizenship' programme, some Year 7 pupils have been preparing to implement a litter picking initiative here at Moor Park.
Overseen by Mrs Bradley and Mr Hawarden, a group of pupils were selected to receive training in the safe practice of litter picking from Preston Council’s Litter Education Officer, Anne Millne-Riley. The training took place on the bright sunny morning of 24 May.
Now the training has been delivered, the group will demonstrate the correct procedure to the rest of Year 7 who will then, on a weekly basis, take part in supervised litter picking sessions around the school grounds and immediate surrounding area. As 'active citizens', our Year 7 pupils will be making a valued contribution both to the school and the community.
Working with Preston City Council, the school has already been awarded the 'Bronze' and 'Silver' Eco-Excellence Awards and following this latest initiative we have applied for the highest 'Gold' schools Eco Award.
