ALLEN Park and Swanbourne Beach are looking cleaner after Year 3 students from Loreto Nedlands Primary School helped reduce litter during the Schools Clean Up Day event last Friday.

Clean Up Australia managing director Terrie-Ann Johnson said it was important young people learn how to preserve and care for the environment.

“Schools Clean Up Day is a pro-active way to demonstrate that lots of small actions, such as picking up litter, can help reduce the pollution clogging our precious parks, bushland, waterways and oceans before it kills our wildlife,” she said.

“Opening their eyes starts with looking around them at litter accumulating in spaces they share.”

Loreto Nedlands was just one of 3436 schools across Australia that took part in Clean Up Australia Day.
