Pupils at Broadgreen Primary School became Scooper Heroes to combat a menace.
The year 1 and 2 pupils have been involved in a campaign to reduce dog fouling in the area around the school.
As part of their project – which helped towards Broadgreen retaining its Eco School Green Flag status- they carried out an audit with the help of the city council officers and saw how the pavements were sprayed warning that owners who do not clean up after their pets face a £50 penalty,
And for the Big Scoop Week, organised by the DogsTrust, they become Scooper Heroes, complete with capes and badges.
Councillor Steve Munby, cabinet member for neighbourhoods , said: “It’s great that the children have become involved in this project .They will be taking the message out to entourage owner to clean up after their pets.”
