Range, litter and the environment

ON Tuesday, 14 May 2013, Year 7 and 8 pupils at Range watched a very entertaining and informative performance about litter and the environment. The performance was also attended by Councillor Denise Dutton (see photo) who said:- "I am very keen on increasing the levels of recycling in our area. Educating young people on littering and recycling can only lead to improvements to the environment in which we live."

The show was a great success and the students said it has made them think about what they do with litter. We hope this will have a positive impact on the environment.
