The pupils discovered that discarded rubbish along with a lack of bins was a problem on the stretch of road between the school and Feeny village.
They also noted that there was no litter bins were located close to the GAA pitch.
Unsatisfied with their findings, the pupils wrote letters to the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council highlighting the litter problem.
