Success Primary School teacher Cindy Hearsch said students had decided to keep Boronia Park free from rubbish as it was used by many students and parents visiting the school every day.

‘Whilst six classes from the education support setting participated in the Adopt-a-Spot excursion, together we were able to remove over 25 bags of rubbish from Boronia Park’s perimeter,’ she said.

‘All students really enjoyed the day while participating in the community access program (and) helping to keep our environment beautiful.’

Ms Hearsch said the adoption of Boronia Park would represent an on-going challenge, with people deciding it was a good place to dump rubbish.

‘Previous to this morning some individual classes have assisted the council by taking note of larger items of rubbish which have sadly been dumped, including such items as double bed mattresses, fridge doors, household furniture and large pieces of concrete which required council collection.’
