PUBLIC-spirited pupils from Coventry’s Eden Girls’ School are cleaning up their local area as part of a new litter-picking project.

The students have joined forces with young people from Gurdwara Guru Nanak Parkash, The Coventry UN Society, Coventry City Council and Police officers from West Midlands Police to ensure Swanswell Park restores its natural beauty.

Armed with bin bags and litter pickers the eager team of 20 cleared almost 20 bags of litter as part of this year’s Great British September Clean.

The campaign urges people to take care of their local area by organising rubbish collections and, in the process, create safe, clean spaces for the entire community to enjoy.

Anand Patel, Principal of Eden Girls’ School, Coventry, praised the team for said: “The pupils involved had a very enjoyable day and were pleased to see how their efforts helped to make a real difference.

“As a school that sits at the very heart of our local community, we are always keen to contribute to initiatives that help to improve our environment and the lives of local people.”

She added she hoped the school would continue with regular litter-picks and said everyone was looking forward to clearing up more areas in the near future.

Eden Girls’ School, part of Star Academies, is a secondary free school for pupils aged 11 to 16 which opened in September 2014.

It was graded ‘outstanding’ in its most recent Ofsted inspection.
