Beach Clean-up (Plastic Free Seas)
As part of our recent environmental “Green Week”, our students and teachers joined forces with local charity Plastic Free Seas to clean up our beach at Discovery Bay’s North Plaza. Before we got their hands dirty, charity Director of Operations, Dana Winograd, presented the group of 25 children with information on how careless waste disposal results in pollution which impacts our environment and sea life. Enthused by what they had learned, our students headed to the beach and began the huge task of cleaning up the debris.
With 9 full bin bags of waste to show for the efforts, students then brainstormed ideas on how they could help improve their environmental endeavours in our local community.
