Cannons clears Canal

On the last day of Term 1, Cannons Creek Independent High School hosted a canal clean-up event, organised by the environmental Prefect portfolio. The initiative encouraged pupils, staff, and house captains to come together to clear the canal of debris and rubbish. The event was a great success, with over eight bags of rubbish collected and the winning team being Lonsdale House. The true winners were the environment and the local community. The clean-up event demonstrated the school’s commitment to sustainability and the importance of preserving natural resources for future generations. The school was divided into their three houses, and were then tasked with collecting as much rubbish as possible from the canal, which runs adjacent to the school grounds. Staff members were on hand to monitor the area for safety and ensure that the event ran smoothly.

The event was a fantastic way to encourage pupils to take responsibility for their environment and make a positive contribution to their local community. The canal clean-up was not only an effective way to remove litter and debris from the area but also provided a fun and productive way for pupils to spend their time. Overall, the Cannons Creek canal clean-up event was a huge success and a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Prefects. The event not only helped to keep the local area clean and free of rubbish but also provided a valuable opportunity for pupils to learn about the importance of environmental stewardship and the impact that their actions can have on the world around them.
