Fifty students took to Flat Bush last Friday, in an effort to clean up the area. The students from Tyndale Park Christian School and Hamilton Christian School were surprised at the amount of rubbish they collected.
Principal of Tyndale Park Christian School Barend Blom wanted to use this as an opportunity to teach the values of service and to give back to the community.
“Tyndale Park Christian School also wants neighbours to know that we love being part of this neighbourhood and that we want to do our part to ensure Flat Bush is a great place to live,” said Blom.
This is not the last time they will be doing a cleanup either; Blom is already planning what to do next.
“An interesting next step will be to do some research on why trash is ending up on our sidewalks and gutters to help council come up with a solution that will enable us have a cleaner neighbourhood.”
