The school held its litter collection on February 12 and principal Sue Waterhouse said they picked up rubbish outside the school fence perimeter.

“We were very careful and the students wore gloves and were instructed not to pick up anything dangerous, including broken glass or any other sharp objects,” she said.

“The rubbish ranged from small pieces of paper to large planks of wood.”

Clean-up Australia Day falls on March 6 this year, with schools encouraged to hold events on March 4.

Two Rocks resident Suzi Logue will hold her annual clean-up on Two Rocks Road this Sunday, starting from Blaxland Road, between 8am and noon. Mrs Logue said more volunteers would be welcome.
