Community Clean up exercises are top on the list of our School Social activities. During these exercises, we clean community areas, parks, markets, bus stations and the elders homes in the community. We use local brooms, polythene bags, hoes and spades. The exercise is usually fun where children learn about giving back to the community, sanitation and hygiene, making friends in the community and we also teach the people in the community various topics concerning sanitation and hygiene.
We do this exercise once every term.
The communities where we go are usually much cleaner after the exercise.
Do schools in the UK clean their communities? We would like to learn how schools in the UK go about this exercise.
Thank you all
