Diss High School students go litter-picking
Forty enthusiastic students jumped at the chance to rid the town of its litter.
Teenagers at Diss High School organised a litter pick which took place on Wednesday, November 6 around the school and town centre.
“We run a climate committee at the school and students have taken it upon themselves to make changes and to do better,” said school council co-ordinator Kim Jarocki.
“It was something they felt quite passionately about and we had such an overwhelming number of them volunteer that we had to split them up in two groups over two hours.”
Overall, the groups collected 10 bags of rubbish filled with cans, paper and bottles.
“They were very enthusiastic about the things they were finding and they were enjoying themselves, which was nice to see,” said Ms Jarocki.
“It went incredibly well.”
The school is hoping to do another litter pick in the summer term.
