Tatura Primary School’s 2018 Envirokids were excited to begin their first clean-up for the year at Lake Bartlett.
Ten EnviroKids visited the site on Wednesday, March 7, in conjunction with Clean-up Australia Day.
The students worked with Greater Shepparton City Council waste education officer Hilary Grigg and RiverConnect education project officer Alison Trethowan to remove rubbish for the area.
The students also removed the plastic barriers from trees planted by last year’s Envirokids.
Tatura PS science and sustainability leader Donna Crosbie said the students were delighted to begin their duties.
‘‘The students are very excited for their first trip.’’
