This week (April 24-28), 34 schools within the Rocky View School Division will be participating in the third annual Helping Hands cleanup.

These are the Airdrie schools that are taking part:

  • A.E. Bowers Elementary School
  • Bert Church High School
  • C.W. Perry School
  • Cooper’s Crossing School
  • École Edwards Elementary School
  • George McDougall High School
  • Heloise Lorimer School
  • Murial Clayton Middle School
  • Northcott Prairie School
  • Nose Creek Elementary School
  • Ralph McCall School
  • Windsong Heights School
  • W.H. Croxford High School

The Helping Hands cleanup corresponds with Earth Day which was on April 22.

During the cleanup, staff and students take time to keep their school grounds beautiful by collecting garbage from their playground areas.

The cleanup helps build community, show school spirit and reinforce a message of environmental stewardship.

Last year five Airdrie schools took part in the event, those schools were:

  • A.E. Bowers Elementary School
  • Bert Church High School
  • Cooper’s Crossing
  • Northcott Prairie
  • Nose Creek Elementary

The inaugural Helping Hands Cleanup was held in April 2021.
