Environmental and Sustainability Shield

Harrison in S3 received an Environmental and Sustainability Shield from the school back in July for his efforts in keeping the school clean and tidy. As well as regular litter picks around the campus, Harrison spends 1 period a week going round the Academy collecting recycling from all the departments. Harrison is very proud of his work in keeping Alford Academy clean and tidy. He is very passionate about making the school look as good as it can, well done Harrison. Keep up the good work!
