Grade 9 students from General Wolfe School were part of the West End BIZ’s 27th annual Sweep Off on April 25. More than 300 students from neighbourhood schools took part in the initiative to pick up litter and sweep up sand left over from the winter in West End sidewalks, boulevards and parks.
"This program has been going on for 27 years and that really speaks to its success. While giving the area a good sweep, the students really learn what goes down…someone has to pick up!" Gloria Cardwell-Hoeppner, executive director of the West End BIZ said in a statement.
