Creek clean

Auckland City Harbour News - - News -

Waterview Pri­mary School stu­dents will be do­ing their bit for Clean Up New Zealand Week which runs from to­day to Septem­ber 11.

They will be work­ing with mem­bers of the Friends of Oak­ley Creek group to tidy up ar­eas around the creek’s wa­ter­fall next Tues­day, be­tween 9.30am and 11.30am.

School prin­ci­pal Brett Skeen says it is good for the stu­dents to be work­ing with the group and be in­volved in a com­mu­nity project.

Com­mu­nity groups are en­cour­aged to get in­volved with the cleanup week through rub­bish col­lect­ing, reusing plas­tic bags and car­ing for the en­vi­ron­ment.

The week is a na­tional event co-or­di­nated by the Keep New Zealand Beau­ti­ful Char­i­ta­ble Trust and is de­signed to ed­u­cate and en­cour­age all Ki­wis to clean up and pre­serve their sur­round­ings.
