ABOUT 40,000 students in Fiji took part in the Bank of the South Pacific's Go Green clean-up campaign that was held last Friday.
BSP's head of marketing Nirdesh Singh said they were blown away by the response from the students and their enthusiasm to take part.
"We would like to thank each school and student for taking part and doing their part in keeping their environment clean and healthy," he said.
Mr Singh said students and schools should not just stop there but continue doing their part in ensuring a sustainable and clean environment that they could enjoy.
Schools like Holy Trinity Anglican Primary School, Yat Sen and Vatuwaqa Primary were just some schools from Suva that took part in the event, with confirmation that schools from as far as Naitasiri also joining in the clean-up campaign.
Veiuto Primary School in Suva also took part and cleaned up along the Nasese foreshore in front of their school and ended at Cathedral Secondary School.
Some schools in the Northern Division also registered to be part of the project.
Ratu Kadavulevu School and Queen Victoria School were also on the list of registered schools along with the Methodist Church Lay Training College in Davuilevu.
BSP had provided registered schools with rubbish collection bags, gloves and promotional items to reward the students for their efforts.
The BSP Go Green clean-up campaign started in 2010 with 18,000 registered in that year and has since grown.
