On Thursday 30 May, Mr Mills and Mr Pishief took both year 8 classes on an action day. We had been visited by Seacleaners at school and had arranged to participate in a community day. Led by Skipper Tracey and her assistant we did a land based cleanup at the end on Port Road. We found an interesting range of things, from balls to bottles, steel rings to rope.
At Limeburners creek we had a second site and we picked up a phenomenal amount of rubbish in an 80 metre strip. All this rubbish has come down the Hatea river from our community.
We then went to the Riverside skate park for a shared kai and a drink of water, before returning to school. The students were all surprised by the amount of rubbish they could find in such a small area. Thanks to Mike Easterbrook and Isaac for their help driving and modelling expectations. (by Mr Mills)
