Pupils at Ramsgate Arts School engaged with the council’s Education Officer, who is leading on our anti-littering campaigns across the district. Various events like workshops and assemblies in schools, help to raise awareness about litter and its impact on the environment. We believe that changing behaviour and attitudes towards litter starts with education.

The whole of Ramsgate Arts school participated in an assembly on the importance of binning litter and everyone danced and sang along to an educational song called ‘Bin it to the beat!’. Everyone had a fun and enjoyable time learning about such an important topic. Great work Ramsgate Arts School – you were awesome and knowledgeable on caring for the environment!

Mars Wrigley have been running the Bin it Education campaign for 15 years and are working in partnership with the council.

If you would like to get involved and book a workshop or assembly, please contact us at education@thanet.gov.uk.

Ramsgate Arts School pupils were also out and about keeping the surroundings clean and tidy by picking up litter. Well done, you’re super. Keep up the good work!

Schools Shout Out!

Thank you St Anthony’s School, Margate for dedicating your time to help keep our district clean and tidy. Like dedicated wombles, they have been out and about at Northdown Park, Tivoli Woods and other local areas litter picking. We are proud to have such committed schools working hard to care for the environment.

Fun Fact: The average plastic bag is used for only 12 minutes, but takes 1000 years to break down – that’s a long time after only 12 minutes of use!
