“Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. It’s also dangerous for people and damaging to our tourism and fishing industries. We all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter” (Marine Conservation Society)
P4-7 were delighted to be involved in this year’s Beach Clean in Invergordon. We were supported by a couple of volunteers from the Port Authority and Roadbridge. The pupils relished the opportunity to take their learning out of the classroom. The school endeavours to give our pupils as many opportunities as possible to become Confident Individuals, Effective Contributors, Successful Learner and Responsible Citizens.
Today’s work also allowed us to help the pupils:
- evaluate environmental, scientific and technological issues
- develop informed, ethical views of complex issues
- assess risk and take informed decisions
- achieve success in different areas of activity
- develop a knowledge and understanding of the world and Scotland’s place in it
We are incredibly proud of the attitude and behaviour of the pupils who achieved great results for our environment. Thank you also to the parents who came along to help!
