Children at Dudley take action as they do their part in taking care for the environment
On Thursday 31 March, Dudley Infant Academy’s School Council undertook a litter pick in the local community. Dudley’s councilors regularly meet each term and an important standing item on their agenda was, and continues to be care for the environment, and how the academy can work together to look after it. The children at Dudley organised the litter pick activity and worked together as a team to clean up the pavements in the local area with their own kits.
Stuart Maclean, Principal at Dudley Infant Academy said, “We are incredibly proud of our School Council members and the respect and dedication they have demonstrated. Tackling issues such as litter can make a big impact on local communities, and this has now inspired our councilors to learn about the wider environmental problems associated with waste, working together to develop solutions for the future.”
Joanne Luke, Assistant Principal was also proud of her School Council efforts to make a difference to their local community. She said, “It was a pleasure to accompany our School Council on their litter pick and see them work hard as a team to uphold the Trust's and Dudley Infant Academy values in the local community”.
Dudley Infant Academy is one of 15 academies part of The University of Brighton Academies Trust. The Trust are pleased to see Dudley’s School Council encouraging care for the environment. By taking action and setting a positive example we hope to see more care when it comes to looking after where we live and making our streets cleaner - it all makes a difference. Well done, Dudley!
