Back from Holidays and Back on the Beach!

After a great Christmas break the boys of St Bernards came back full of gusto and ready to get involved in the beach clean-up program which has been running on the Surf Coast since 2009. As expected, after a long summer, there was quite an amount of rubbish on the shore, not to mention what must of gone back out to sea. Again plastic was the number item, with a massive 1,733 bits of broken, hard plastic littered over just 500m of beach! Also high on the list was cigarette butts with 132, and food packaging with 53 pieces. All in all it was a succesful colleciton and the students did an awesome job with not only the collection, but the data collation as well!
