This month, our Grade 8 students took a trip to Bermuda after months of preparation. Their goal was to study the effects of plastic pollution, in addition to discovering a beautiful island.
There, they joined a local school in a round-table discussion about environmental issues and did a beach cleanup with the organization Keep Bermuda Beautiful. They visited the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute to learn about the human impact on marine environments. They also got hands-on learning opportunities at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences with a coral reef visit.
Our students came back more informed and motivated to help against plastic pollution!
