Primary one pupils in North Berwick came together to clean up the West Beach.

Parents, teachers and members of Bass Rock Community Group were joined by 80 pupils on Friday, April 8, to help pick up litter, having learnt about the importance of the environment in school.

Lorraine Johnston, P1 teacher at Law Primary School, said: “Primary one at Law Primary School have been learning about their local environment and how to look after it.

“They’ve learned about North Berwick and also about the damaging effect of litter in the town and on the beach.

“As part of their learning, they took part in a beach clean at a local beach, helped by the Bass Rock Community Group and the Scottish Seabird Centre.”

The litter-pickers also received equipment from the Seabird Centre to help make the job a little easier as they tidied up the beach.

Richard Rogers, of the Bass Rock Community Group, said: “It was a lovely day to be on the beach.

“With the assistance of some of the parents who were able to come along, and with the loan of equipment from the Seabird Centre, it was a real pleasure to see the children bring what they learn in the classroom, at such a young age, to life in the reality of their local environment.

“Everyone involved had a really great time!”
