Pupils put an end to dog fouling outside their school

72 days ago

Primary school children get together to put an end to dog fouling outside their schools.

The Federation of Carwe, Gwynfryn and Ponthenri schools have been working hard to raise the issue of dog fouling issues in their villages. 

The pupils decided that they’d had enough and wanted to stop this disgusting and dangerous problem happening outside their schools and on their streets.

A blog was created where pupils discussed the issue with children throughout Carmarthenshire, receiving ideas on what they could do to resolve the issue. They also decided to write to the local Community Council to highlight the issue.  

A poster design competition was held in each school, and the winning artwork was turned into a banner and displayed in a prominent position on the school fence. 

The pupils' hard work has paid off, with a reduction of dogs fouling in the area, although there is still a lot more work to be done.
