8HP have now successfully completed their silver leadership.
We achieved this by doing litter picking every Friday from 3.00-3.30 for twelve weeks. As a class we wanted to make an impact on our school and our community.
We chose litter picking as our silver leadership because we were shocked how much litter there was around the school and how dirty it’s becoming. We also did litter picking for another reason which was to keep our community nice and clean for the people who live nearby don’t complain.
Litter is a worldwide issue. Students of 8HP had been trying to reduce litter. After litter picking for more than 12 weeks students and teachers of Park High have noticed a difference. Recently, our head teacher, Mr Lumley had been to a meeting with the local people in Harrow. They had been complaining about the litter issue for months and after we had started litter picking the local people had admitted that the school and the local area is a much cleaner place.
Benefits of this we hope is that it encourages other people to pick up litter even if they haven’t dropped it in the first place. It’s about working together and being a team. Overall, litter picking has had a great impact as litter is slowly reducing day by day.
Hopefully students have been encouraged to do the same job as 8HP.
Help keep our school a litter free place.
