Ardnahoe Nursery

Children at Ardnahoe Nursery undertook a project to raise awareness of dog poo on the pavements surrounding their nursery school.

Previously, children made signs which are displayed on the nursery railings.

They were made from laminated paper so they did not withstand the weather so they now needed to be made in a more durable format.

The funding from the Litter Less Campaign was put towards printing the children's signs onto aluminium boards for the local community.

They redesigned their litter and dog poo signs to include photographs of nursery children keeping Toryglen tidy - litter picking areas around the nursery school and demonstrating what to do with dog poo.

On top of the signs, the nursery regularly takes care of the streets around the school by litter picking, and assisting in clearing areas of Toryglen along with the Environmental Community Safety Team.

Their regular litter picks are part of our their ongoing work for Eco-Schools (a recent Environmental Review showed that their school grounds are litter free!).

The nursery has adopted the surrounding streets to provide learning experiences of keeping Toryglen tidy for children.

Litter picking sessions in neighbouring streets are now part of regular activities and children regularly work with Community Safety Glasgow and Middlefield School to clear litter from a local park.

Finally, the nursery also looks after a vacant piece of land at the bottom of the street that had been used to dump household refuse and was becoming a litter trap.
