This April 22, Hanmer High School is taking action! With the support of the City of Greater Sudbury, students will go out into the community with gloves, garbage bags, blue boxes and safety vests to do their part for the environment. Accompanied by volunteers and staff, the students will go to the neighborhoods surrounding the school to pick up litter along the roads. After school, another group will head to the Howard Armstrong Recreation Center to continue the community cleanup. As the students say so well “We only have one planet earth and it is time to act to protect it!
