A SCHOOL in Harlow has taken a pledge to help the town by establishing multiple involvement projects.
Sir Frederick Gibberd College aims to increase its reputation within the community, beginning with litter-picking this half term.
A team of 37 students managed to collect a total of nine bags of rubbish and three bags of recycling from Harlow Town Park.
Head teacher Dee Conlon said “We want to get our children involved in their community and to instil good habits which they will continue when they become adults.”
Ms Conlon said the school hoped to ensure that it could play an active role in the community, adding “We want them to always look to contribute and to do what they can for those less fortunate than themselves.”
A year seven student, Spencer Stapleton, who is a part of the community involvement project said “I want to get involved anyway I can, I just want to help.”
The school has already planned its next community project, a food drive for Harlow Foodbank.
