A recount by Monica and Sharon
On Thursday the 26th June the whole of Te Manawa went around the school to pick up rubbish but it was called the native garden clean up because we focussed on our gardens but really we cleaned up the whole school.
What is a native garden clean up? Well a native clean up is when you go through and find rubbish in the trees, bushes and plants and it is working outside.
Different classes were doing different areas like the park, court, back gardens and the pathway.
Then because Room 17 is very responsible we went out of school to look for some more rubbish on the pathways around our school. We know we would have impressed our parents because they will think that our school is a very healthy and clean environment. We feel proud that we were able to contribute to this.
