STUDENTS at South Bathurst Public School were yesterday doing their bit for Clean Up Australia as they hit the oval and other areas of the school in readiness for the official event tomorrow.

South Bathurst school teacher Daniel McBryde said the school grounds were divided up into zones, with each class responsible for cleaning up a specific area.
Mr McBryde said the school grounds are normally very clean anyway, as the staff and students are very conscious of cleaning up, but they hold a mini clean up day in the lead up to Clean Up Australia to promote the main event, which gets underway at 8am tomorrow.
He said the school holds its own mini clean up Australia day every year, to encourage children to get involved and help keep Australia tidy.
Mr McBryde said many of the students had indicated they will be participating in Clean Up Australia Day.
Organisers of tomorrow’s event are also hoping for a large turn out.
Last year 16 areas were registered on the Clean Up Australia Day website across the Bathurst region, including sites at Raglan, Mount Rankin and the city centre.
The number of site registrations last year, according to Bathurst Regional Council, was more than double those in 2012.
Bathurst Regional Council will again assist the community this year in cleaning up sites across the region.
Volunteers can register online or simply turn up at Morse Park (on the corner of the Great Western Highway and Bentinck Street) from 8am on the day and register as a volunteer.
