Students spruce up Glennie Heights

HATS on heads, gloves on hands and armed with garbage bags, the students of Glennie Heights State School took to the streets and playground yesterday for Clean Up Australia Day.

Principal Paul O'Mara said the school recognised the importance of the event.

"We registered to be a part of Clean Up Australia Day because we thought it was important to support caring for the community and the environment," Mr O'Mara said.

"We discussed at assembly the importance of acting locally and thinking globally.

"The kids were fantastic and excited about being involved. On a positive note, the rubbish collection was not huge."

The community Clean Up, in which anyone can volunteer, is normally held on the first Sunday of March, however no plans for Warwick have been made this year.

The usual organiser Graham Buchner, who is unable to facilitate activities this year, urged to people to use their initiative.

"I urge everyone to do their bit in their area this weekend," Mr Buchner said.
