Biology students traded the classroom for the great outdoors when they donned their wellies and helped clear up a pond and wildlife garden.
The Year 12 students from St Bonaventure’s school were invited to help out at West Ham Park by the support officer, who needed assistance with restoring some of the park’s habitats.
As the eight teenagers are studying ecology as part of their A-Level course at the Boleyn Road school, it provided a perfect opportunity to get some hands-on experience.
Science teacher, Mr Cawley, organised the clean-up and said: “They were able to see how important habitats are and do their bit for the community too.”
West Ham Park is the largest in the borough and has been owned by the City of London for 140 years.
