A report on the litter problem at  St. Teilo’s Church in Wales high school

The head of St. Teilos Church in Wales high school, Mr. Timothy Pratt, asked me, as a representative of the school council, to research the issue of litter inside and outside of the school premises and report my findings.

          Another place that seemed to be quite badly affected was the top yard (also known as the red gra) and the field.
