In December Third Class took part in a Leave No Trace workshop based on environmental awareness and promoting the importance of our oceans. Dorothy, our speaker on the day, brought in various objects she found on a local beach. In groups the children had to estimate how long each item would take to disintegrate. Items such as plastic bags, runners and glass bottles were examined. Dorothy also taught us about the negative effects of microbeads in the environment and especially how it badly effects sea life. It was a very enjoyable and informative afternoon.
