The Great RHS Litter Pick

On Friday 3rd March, 60 of our students were involved in a community litter pick, in association with the Hillingdon Litter Picking Association. 

Organised by the Friends of Ruislip High School, the event was a brilliant opportunity for our students to give back to the local community and contribute to the Trust’s Environmental Sustainability Week. 

Students were allocated different ‘zones’ in the local area, such as West End Road and the Banana Park; they worked in groups of three collecting waste and separating it into recyclable and non-recyclable rubbish.

Students managed to collect 25 bags of rubbish in just under 30 minutes, showing what a big impact we can all have on the environment in such a short space of time. All who attended the event commented on how fun it was to get involved. 

Alex Sim, who leads the Hillingdon Litter Picking Association told us that the students who helped were all great and said: “It was a great way to end the week educating our youth about caring for our environment.”

Thank you to all of the students and parents who supported the event.
