The Clean Sweep

The pupils, staff and parents were challenged to make a difference to their planet by picking up litter and tidying up their local environment in The Ardingly Clean Sweep. The challenge, that took place over nine days at the start of August, was simple: put on some gloves, find some rubbish and put it in the bin. Job done. We had people taking part from Singapore to Swansea and Tilgate Park to The Trossachs. As a community we achieved what we set out to do and the world of Twitter enjoyed a nine-day festival of photos from all round the globe. Teaching our pupils the value of making a positive difference was most rewarding.
