Stu­dents clean up fore­shore

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

YEAR 4 stu­dents at Wes­ley Col­lege re­cently spent time clean­ing up the river­front to help pre­serve marine life.

Af­ter learn­ing the im­por­tance of sus­tain­abil­ity, the stu­dents’ eyes were opened to the dev­as­tat­ing ef­fects that plas­tic can have on marine life, oceans and wa­ter­ways.

The stu­dents cre­ated a pe­ti­tion ask­ing for plas­tic re­cy­cling bins at the school and sub­mit­ted it to their teach­ers.

They then cleaned up plas­tic from the fore­shore south of the school.

The stu­dents also hope to ed­u­cate peo­ple to not dump plas­tic into the en­vi­ron­ment.
