BANK South Pacific’s 2014 GO GREEN Annual Clean-up day is launched this morning at St Nicholas Secondary School by BSP’s Country Manager David Anderson.
Mr Anderson says that this year’s Go Green Annual Clean Up day will be coordinated through partnerships with Honiara City Council, SIBC, Solomon Star Limited, Island Sun, [email protected], Pathfinder Club, Bahai Youth, 13 registered Schools in Honiara, 4 community schools adopted by BSP’s provincial branches at Auki, Gizo, Munda and Noro and selected sportsmen and sportswomen of the Solomon Islands.
Thousands of school students, youth groups and BSP staff and their families across the Solomons will participate in the BSP Annual Go Green School Clean Up Day today and tomorrow – Saturday the 1st of November and Sunday 2nd November, 2014.
Up to 200 odd students and staff of St Nicholas Secondary School witnessed the launch at 8am this morning whilst 15 other participating schools in the country will also be cleaning up simultaneously marking this great annual event.
“It is important that children and adults are reminded to be responsible and to keep our streets, beaches, parks, and public areas clean. BSP’s Go Green Message for 2014 is ‘Our Green City’,” Mr Anderson added.
All BSP staff nationwide will join the schools for the clean-up.
BSP will support the school students with merchandise and garbage bags and gloves. The students will clean up around their school areas.
BSP encourages communities to support the school students and lend a helping hand.
The reward for everyone will be a cleaner community and students will learn to be more responsible in caring for the environment.
BSP staff will use the opportunity to stress the message of Go Green:- Solomon Islanders to be more responsible when they dispose litter, so the environment is kept in a clean, green and healthy state.
This is the 3rd year BSP has led a nationwide clean-up.
BSP has an on-going Go Green calendar, which includes supporting schools and community groups in clean-up activities and also hosting a World Environment Day Expo.
