Perdiswell Primary School

As part of our work on the Global Citizenship and Litter topics the Eco-Committee decided that we wanted to encourage the school to pick up litter in the local area over the summer holidays. We also discussed the problem of plastic pollution around the world and how we could help from Perdiswell.

We came up with the idea that as some of the children would be travelling abroad (over the summer holidays) and some would be staying more locally we could encourage children to pick up litter both locally and internationally: this would then highlight that litter and pollution is a global issue, not just a local one.

We put together an assembly using powerful images of animals from around the world (with the help of a David Attenborough video) and pitched the idea to our school.

Upon returning for the new academic year we found we had pictures of our pupils litter picking from all over the world including California, Vietnam, Mexico and lots more pictures from closer to home. We put our pictures on display in our dinner hall so everyone could see how Perdiswell had set an example to the world!
