As part of the Green School’s module, our teacher Ms. Gormley brought our class out on a litter pick of the area around our school for a class. We wore high-vis jackets, and we had litter pickers, gloves, and plastic bags. We picked up a lot of litter in the area around our school, including masks, plastic bottles, pizza boxes, and even tweezers and a make-up brush. We found it surprising and disappointing that although there are public bins, people are still littering. Many members of the public thanked us for keeping our area clean.
