August 2012 – Pupils from Lawn Primary School Northfleet have won this year’s annual competition to find the Tidiest School in Gravesham.
At the Mayors Parlour in the Civic Centre last Monday 9th July 2012 representatives from the school were awarded a cheque for £250 and a certificate together with the annual challenge shield. The competition which is run by the Rotary Club of Gravesend is now in its 25th year and is open to all the primary schools in Graveseham.
Rotary President Chris Wraight said that ” since we started this competition the standard of cleanliness and tidyness of our schools has reached such a level that it is becoming increasingly difficult to find a winner. The children are now so keen and keep their playgrounds etc so free of litter that for the past few years we have had to include marks for the schools ‘ green activities’, their gardening, wildlife conservation and environmentally friendly aspects.”
The photograph shows second placed was Shorne Primary school which received a cheque for £150. and Riverview Infants school was Highly Commended with a cheque for £100
