Arthur, can you please tell us a bit about what you did on Saturday.
Yes, we live near the East Coast and my mum and I helped clean up the beach, there were quite a few people helping out, it is like an event.
Can you tell us a bit more about the clean up?
Well, it was really hot and quite hard, but I managed to fill a massive bag with all sorts of rubbish. It was mainly polystyrene and all sorts of plastic but I also found a flip flop. My mum had an even bigger bag than me and it was three quarters full.
Why did you choose to spend your Saturday on the beach, picking up old plastic?
I did it because I want to help the environment and I think that that is very important. I also help my mum at home by putting plastic in a separate bin so it can be recycled.
What would you like say to other students at Dover Court International School who also would like to make a difference?
Just join in and help out! Even if there's not an organised beach clean up, you can still pick up any rubbish you find and put it in a bin. It was quite hard work, but I would definitely do it again.
Well done Arthur, what a great inititiative, we are sure other DCIS students and families will be inspired!
