Early Years department lend support to National Beach Clean Up
19th September 2018

Rydal Penrhos’ youngest children have been doing their bit to help the environment after lending support to a nationwide initiative.

The Early Years group took part in the Great British Clean Up, which was organised by the Marine Conservation Society and centred on the condition of beaches and coastlines up and down the country.

Led by dedicated teaching staff situated within the department, the children spend a considerable amount of time along the Colwyn Bay shore, picking up litter and improving the overall condition of the area.

This was implemented as part of the Prep site’s Coastal School scheme, which gives children an opportunity to learn more about their surrounding on a weekly basis to fully utilise their stunning location.

Early Years’ Head Louise Roberts, said: “The Great British Clean Up was a great way for our children to take part and understand the effects litter has on our beaches and marine life.

“The children were able to find and point out different types of rubbish such as plastic and glass which we as teachers then put in a rubbish bag.

“It was a fantastic scheme to be involved with running alongside our Coastal School.”

Following their clean-up efforts, Mrs Roberts presented an assembly to the entire Pre-Prep contingent highlighting the problems with rubbish and waste on the environment and species around our coastline.
