On Wednesday 20th May 2015 learners from the Student Voice and Nurture carried out a community litter pick in Kexbrough. Learners were supported by staff members, Mrs Briggs, Mr Gardner, Mr Jowitt-Pickering, Mr Portman and Principal Ms Davies.
The purpose of this activity was to tidy the local environment and encourage learners of the school together with local residents to make this local area more desirable for all. Councillor Linda Burgess along with members of the environmental enforcement team also joined the group, allowing learners to gain an even greater understanding of how we can support our local community.
