On Thursday 9th May the students went canoeing in Whitehaven Harbour with Steve from the Whitehaven Harbour Youth Project.

The focus of the canoeing session was on environmental awareness, particularly related to plastic pollution. The students were education about types of plastic pollution and the seabins scheme that Whitehaven Harbour Youth Project are taking part in since gaining funding to buy a seabin. You can visit seabinproject.com to find out more.

The students also completed a litter pick in the harbour after learning some paddling skills to move their canoe rafts around without banging into the expensive moored boats!

The students also learnt about the history of the harbour and the importance of the harbour for the local area. We are now thinking about how we can reduce our plastic waste for our school packed lunches! All of the time on their trip has contributed hours to their JASS award, like the litter pick at the beach.
