Litter Heroes

Rights Respecting Schools: Article 29 (goals of education)
Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other
cultures, and the environment.

Beatlie pupils have been very busy this term out and about in the community helping others by joining thousands of others to show we care about where we live, work and spend our leisure time.

We want to claim back our streets and parks and  keep Scotland beautiful and have taken the Keep Scotland Beautiful pledge to do our bit for Scotland.

Keep Scotland Beautiful Campaign – Community Litter Pick

On Monday Beatlie School Campus put their yellow bibs on and went out into the local community of Craigshill with a mission aking part in a Clean Up and get all the children and staff out into the fresh air together, enjoy some exercise, and make a real, visible difference at the same time.

 

Wriggly Litter Less Campaign

Last week, pupils from Glendevon and Ochiltree made a second trip to the Falkirk Wheel to do a litter pick along the canalside. Their aim to reduce plastic waste and the pollution of our water system. The children did a fantastic work with the support from Scottish Waterways and Keep Scotland Beautiful.

We had great weather both days we went litter picking and this helped keep spirits up as we walked along the canalside.

The children managed an impressive 31kg of rubbish on our first visit and 25kg on our second visit.

Although very happy with our work, it still disappoints us to know how much litter is still getting dropped and how this is affecting our countyside and ourselves!
