Copenhagen pupils hard at work cleaning-up Edward Square

Dozens of children from Copenhagen Primary School joined-up with Keep Britain Tidy to clean-up their school and surrounding neighbourhood – Edward Square, Treaty Street, Copenhagen Street and Caledonian Road.

Friday, 3rd March, was Great British Spring Clean day and pupils at Copenhagen were inspired to clean up Cally by Steve Backshall, naturalist broadcaster and author, who is one of the Keep Britain Tidy ambassadors.

The pupils were helped by a staff team from the school led by Headteacher, Harsha Patel. And the efforts of the school were recognised by a feature carried on ITV’s 6pm news.

Caledonian Ward Councillor, Paul Convery said “This was a brilliant volunteer effort by the school, led by its team of Eco-Councillors and School Council members. The school, its staff and parents can be very proud of their children’s commitment to keeping their school and their neighbourhood clean. I particularly congratulate the school on its stewardship of Edward Square, a treasured pocket park next door to Copenhagen School. For so many kids at Copenhagen, Edwards Square is their garden, back lawn and playspace.”
