Edward Public students are ready to make their school grounds sparkle as part of the annual Clean Up Australia Day.
Although the official nation-wide clean-up is this Sunday, schools are getting in early, with Edward and South School students picking up rubbish around their school grounds today.
Edward School teacher Georgia Jacobs said they participate each year and all 180 students will be involved.
‘‘This teaches students about taking ownership and caring for their environment,’’ she said.
‘‘They realise how rubbish can affect the environment and it makes them think about wanting the school grounds to look nice.
‘‘The day fits in nicely with our Positive Behaviour for Learning system which focus on the three values of respect, responsibility and safety.’’
