This year we have placed a huge focus on how to conserve our brilliantly created planet. This term has been particularly exciting as we’ve been learning about everything under the sea, and how we can protect the sea creatures by making a difference on the land.

We have been “eco-bricking” to our hearts content and this week we went to Fish Hoek Beach to collect litter and change the landscape around us. Geared with gloves and packets, we marched on, determined to save the planet, one straw at a time. At first we thought there wasn’t much litter for us to collect, but we were shocked once we looked a little closer in to every nook and cranny.

It was a blustery day, but that didn’t stop us from building sand castles, playing soccer, “digging holes to China”, jumping over crashing waves, and swimming in the freezing water.

It was such a delightful day with all the Grade 2 classes and their wonderful parents. Thank you to every mom and dad who took time out to help us with lifts and manpower during our Clean Up. We are incredibly fortunate to have such brilliant support, and we look forward to seeing you at our final field trip to Save Our Seas!
