|EDWARD MURPHY STUDENTS CLEAN UP THE NEIGHBORHOOD|
MONTREAL, APRIL 21, 2015 – Despite the wet weather outside, the Edward Murphy Elementary School community of 240 students, staff, parents, as well as two wonderful volunteers from local Eco Quarter, came together recently to clean up their school grounds, both inside and out.
Led by Spiritual Community Animator Rocco Speranza, students, sporting their lovely “On se ramasse tous ensemble” t-shirts, collected recyclable materials as well as raked leaves and branches for composting that were left on school grounds from the fall. Students continued indoors as well, ensuring that the school looked spotless.
“It is very important to care for our outside environment, but keeping our indoor space clean and helping our caretakers is also important,” said Speranza.
Students were provided a healthy snack thanks to local Maxi Versailles. Clean up activities like this one take place regularly at Edward Murphy School as part of the Spiritual and Community Animator green program and activities.
