Bin It! Students learn a lesson about littering

On Wednesday 3rd October, Withernsea High School was visited by the ‘Bin It!’ roadshow – an entertaining and engaging session aimed at confronting the effect of littering on society.

Professional actors delivered a humorous and thought-provoking production with the purpose of encouraging young people to explore a sense of personal responsibility. By demonstrating the effects of anti-social behaviour, such as the consequences of dropping chewing gum, their goal is to change behaviour, making students more socially and environmentally aware about litter they may drop.
