Me and 13 of my batchmates went to clean Dumas Beach, Surat. While playing there we noticed a lot of plastic bottles, glass and other stuff on the beach. So with 1 other school, we decided to clean the beach. This cleaning activity was organized by The Nature Club. We did this so the pollution of the beach is reduced to some extent.
I demonstrated LO3, LO5, LO6.
LO3- Demonstrate how to initiate and plan a CAS experience
Towards the end of the year 2019 we decided to clean our city beach but we had no guidance as to how to clean and where to keep the trash. Hence we contacted a older batchmate of ours whose relative is in the nature club Surat, they helped us organize the event. We were determined to clean but we wanted to do it right, so the nature club helped us do it.
LO5-Demonstrate the skills and recognize the benefits of working collaboratively
As I mentioned above, I went to clean the beach with my friends. It helped to learn the importance of working as a team. In the beginning it was very difficult as we needed to keep on separating dry waste and wet waste but then me and friends as a team decided to make two groups in which one will be collecting dry waste and the other will be collecting wet waste which helped us save time.
LO6-Demonstrate engagement with issues of global significance.
Pollution is the root cause of global warming. There are campaigns around the world to reduce pollution. We are doing just a small part by cleaning our own city’s beach.This will help our cities environment and may inspire others to join us.
