Students in Grades 6, 7 and 8 at Dalhousie Regional High School (Dalhousie, NB) recently held a school grounds cleanup event on June 23, 2021, picking up litter and discarded recyclables around the schoolyard and the soccer fields, as well as the community surrounding the school. Teacher Donna Webb was inspired to organize the event for her school after hearing about the Loïck project “Helping Mother Earth” movement this past spring and seeing ads for Encorp Atlantic’s 2021 Recycling Heroes Community Cleanup Grants. She believes it is important to teach students the importance of taking care of our earth. What better way than to do a hands-on activity that demonstrates the harmful effects of litter on our planet and empowers the students to take action!
Awesome job, Dalhousie Regional High School! What a great way to end the school year! Keep spreading the anti-litter message and leading by example by ensuring your school grounds and community remain beautiful and clean!
