In a heartening display of community spirit, families from Andrews’ Endowed CE Primary School in Holybourne recently participated in a Trash Mob.

This was dedicated to cleaning up the areas surrounding the school and their homes.

The initiative not only exemplified the school’s core values of high aspiration, moral strength and spiritual depth, but also showcased the importance of love, courage and respect in action.

The Trash Mob, organised by Andrews’ Endowed and resourced by the Alton Climate Action Network, brought together the school in a collective effort to make a positive impact on the local environment.

The school’s commitment to instilling a sense of responsibility and community engagement was vividly demonstrated as families worked hand in hand to rid the area of litter.

Reflecting the school’s vision, pupils actively participated in the clean-up, embodying the values of love, courage and respect throughout the event.

The sense of unity and shared purpose was palpable as families not only cleaned up their surroundings but also engaged in meaningful conversations about the potential impact of litter on wildlife.

One participating family shared their experience, stating: “It allowed us to reflect on how the litter could impact wildlife.

“We were reminded of the importance of taking care of our environment for the sake of future generations.”

This sentiment echoed the broader goal of instilling a sense of environmental stewardship in the community.

Andrews’ Endowed remains committed to making a lasting positive difference in the local community.

With the success of the Trash Mob, the school aims to continue fostering a culture of responsibility, awareness and collective action among its pupils, the staff team and all their families.

The event not only served as a tangible step towards a cleaner and healthier community but also as a testament to the power of collaboration and shared values.

Andrews’ Endowed looks forward to building on this success and creating more opportunities for positive community engagement in the future.
