Combining science and helping the environment with a trip to the beach is a great way to spend a day at school. Year 3 students at Tathra were lucky enough to be part of a program that did just that.
‘Marine Debris – Clean Up Your Act’ is a new school program run by the Sapphire Coast Marine Discovery Centre (SCMDC) as part of a grant received from the IMB Community Foundation. The program was piloted with a year 3 class from Tathra Public School in terms 3 and 4.

Students spent and hour scouring the beach for every little bit of rubbish and were still cleaning on the walk back to school. Read more “Clean Up Your Act!”
