Keen to get involved in a national campaign to keep Britain clean and tidy while teaching their students about the values of environmental protection, a Nelson primary school have fully embraced this year's Great British Spring Clean.


With every class at Nelson St. Philip's C of E Primary School getting involved in the initiative - which aims to cut down on littering, improve public spaces, educate the younger generations, and reduce waste - the pupils took to their task wonderfully.

The students collected more than 20 bin bags-worth of rubbish.

On Friday, March 9th, the children picked up all the litter they could find on the car park opposite the rear entrance of the school, which is located on Leeds Road in the town, as part of the clean-up programme, which is running from March 2nd to March 25th.

And the students' efforts were immediately telling, with more than 20 bin bags-worth of rubbish collected and cleared from the car park, with the mantra of "Together we can make a difference and clean up the environment on our doorstep," ringing true.
