School crews clear trash from South Shore
Students, staff and parents from Saltus Grammar School and Warwick Academy descended on South Shore over the weekend to clear trash and debris from the beaches.
Meanwhile a team from Bermuda High School for Girls took to Admiralty House Park to join in the island-wide clean up.
The Saltus group spent more than an hour on Saturday morning at John Smith’s Bay as part of International Coastal Clean Up Day. The initiative was organised by S4 teacher and Saltus alumna, Erika Powell.
Some 113 people turned out, collecting the equivalent of 27 bags of regular trash and 11 bags of recyclables plus a few bulky items found on the beach.
Meanwhile, Warwick Academy students, staff and parents combed Elbow Beach and Coral Beach on Saturday collecting rubbish.
The event, in support of Keep Bermuda Beautiful’s Marine Clean Up initiative, was organised by head girl Eryn Bhola and also saw a group of the school’s IB environmental science students sort, document and map what they collected.
