Students at UCEA rally to tackle the growing litter issue -
On Wednesday 9th May, representatives from the UCEA Student Council in Years 7 and 9, including Head Boy and Head Girl, volunteered to take part in a litter pick as part of promoting positive action within the wider community of Ellesmere Port.
The students decided to take action on the local issue of litter and help improve the immediate vicinity of the school.
Mr Anderson, Chaplain at UCEA, said: “It was useful to engage with local residents who were initially curious as to why students would volunteer to undertake a litter pick. They were delighted that members of the University Church of England Academy were making a positive impact on the surrounding area. The students themselves were a credit to our school and demonstrated the core values of ‘Believe’ ‘Belong’ and ‘Become’ so well through their teamwork.”
Liam Alman, Head Boy at the Academy, added: “It was a shock to collect so much litter in a relatively short space of time. The team were great because they were willing to pull together and get stuck in. I was really glad that we managed to help our local community in such a meaningful way.”
