Clean the Beach Community Project

Friday 13th November was the second Waves Surfware and Coastcare ‘Clean the Beach Community Project‘. Students from 4 schools participated Hamilton SHS, Mt Lawley SHS, North Lake Senior Campus and North Lake – English as Second Language students. I was lucky enough to go beach cleaning with a great team from Hamilton Senior High.

Everyone did such a great job but I have to particularly congratulate Taylor and Callum. No rubbish was to horrid for Taylor to collect and no rubbish was in too difficult a spot for Callum to collect – it had to be cleaned up! Thanks too for the notes below sent to me by Val House.

Clean the Beach Community Project

Hamilton Senior High School

Kerri Leonard and Lisa Moreschi had an enthusiastic group of Year 10 students at Leighton Beach to work with Coastcare to remove rubbish from a section of the beach and dunes. The event sponsored by Waves Surfwear, included training sessions on the fragility of the coast from Kate Sputore (North Metro Coastcare Officer) and beach safety by two volunteers from Surf Lifesaving WA. The Surf Life Saving Club provided lunch for the students and Waves demonstrated their appreciation with a variety of products for each participant. Students recorded 5 hours of Community Service in their log book and can be congratulated on their positive attitudes to voluntary work.

Students (not in order): Aaron Muccarone, Jeremy Stewart, Samantha McLauchlan, Shane Walkley, Madison Maxwell, Isabel Reyes, (pink balloon!), Elizabeth Bird, Callum Farmer, Jayde Harshaw,Taylor Maselli.
