Student Council Promote Litter Picking

Nov 23 2021
Our Student Council recently decided to help out in our combat against litter here in Presentation College.  A competition was launched to see who could come up with the best idea and Kelly in Second Year won a One4All voucher for her idea to try and include as many students as possible in helping to keep our beautiful school grounds clean. On Monday, she was helped by Sammy.  A big thank you to their first helpers: First Years, Karina, Rory, Byron and Leo, who had a very big litter haul under a beautiful blue sky.  Student Council are also looking forward to the arrival of new litter bins to help in the fight against littering.  We hope students will realise how important it is to use the litter bins provided and to protect our environment.
