Students clean up 200kg of rubbish
TOORMINA is now a whole lot cleaner thanks to the enthusiasm of local high school students.
In the spirit of Clean Up Australia, the students at Toormina High School put on their gloves on Friday and spent some time cleaning up the school and its surrounds – with some pretty amazing results.
The students picked up around 200 kilograms of rubbish.
“It was amazing, the students collected everything from glass and plastic bottles to kids swing sets and metal objects,” teacher and spokesperson Robert Mill said.
“It’s a yearly event at the school organised by one of our teachers, Alison Hollier.
“We get about 250 students involved.
“We come out of class for an allocated time and clean up not just within the school grounds but within the reserve and bushland next to us, which is where we retrieve most of the waste.
“It’s amazing some of the things we find.” added Mr Mill.
“The kids are always really enthused about it and we’re really proud of our students being so involved in the community.”
