As a fundraiser for Country Week, the JBDHS team participated in a rubbish pickup on the coastal path from Cook St to Hasting St Jurien Bay on Tuesday 7th September after school. It was great to see the team engage in this activity in a very positive manner, although it was reported that it was disappointing to see the sheer amount of rubbish littering our beautiful coastline.
There were approximately 10 large bags of rubbish collected with 858 individual pieces of rubbish weighing approximately 50kg! This included a panel from a boat, a pallet, numerous cigarette butts and plastic bags and bottles, paper, cardboard and wood and some unusual items including a pair of shoes and a pair of jocks. The students participated in the survey to record rubbish collected and of course wore protective gloves!
Well Done to the Country Week team on the clean up. Thanks to Mr Brian Abbey and Miss Jen Heal for attending the initiative. The Jurien Bay District High School team would like to sincerely thank the Shire of Dandaragan for the sponsorship of the team.
The Shire of Dandaragan wishes to thank the students pictures above and wishes all the team the best of luck for Country Week 2010.
