Thursday 23rd April was our Action Day for our 3rd Green Flag and our Active Schools Flag. Second to sixth class took part in a beach clean up at Salterstown Beach. We set off kitted out with gloves, bibs and litter bags. First we did a litter blitz of the road to both sides of the pier. We got some exercise and enjoyed the fresh air and the sunshine. We stopped to watch the sea birds swimming and diving and counted 11 fishing boats out on the sea. By the time we got back to the pier for lunch we had filled almost all the bags and enjoyed a nice walk. We enjoyed a picnic lunch and a long break before we began the beach clean up. We explored the rock pools and did some rock climbing. The beach clean up was interesting work – the amount of litter and rubbish on the beach was astonishing. We found old boots, shoes, rugs, tyres and an old mattress. We worked slowly and carefully and we filled all our bags and some others that we found along the beach too.We found St. Colmans Well and did a special job of cleaning around it because visitors often come there. We were very pleased with our work and the beach did look a lot cleaner after we were finished. We had another break at the pier before the buses came for us. We enjoyed a great action day outdoors caring for our local environment. Enjoy our video.
