Recently all of the Year 8s went to Sylvan Park, Lake Pupuke for a park clean up day. After listening to an encouraging talk from a park ranger, each student received gloves and set off with plastic bags to put rubbish in. People were combing through the grass and searching for rubbish in the bushes. Popular rubbish found were little pieces of wrapping found beneath the bark, as well as cans and strangely, rope. A whole chair, a broken longboard and a pot plant were even found, as well as a stack of tires! After an exhausting morning of hard work with a great outcome, the Year 8s returned back to school.
