‘Surfers Against Sewage’ Visit the School

We have already reported the success of the ‘Surfers Against Sewage’ event at the Landmark Theatre on Monday which saw our Year 7 Environment Group take part in the “Sealife” day.  Today we hosted a visit from Dom Ferris, an Education Managers for ‘Surfers Against Sewage’ who gave an inspirational talk to a group of Year 9 Geography students.  Dom said that the aim of this week was to raise awareness that individuals can make a difference when it comes to safeguarding our coastline and the quality of the water.  He explained that simple things can be important such as thinking about how we dispose of plastic, which can take up to 1000 years to biodegrade, and used cooking oil and fats which can hinder the workings of the sewage system.  The students were clearly interested in the issues Dom raised and several expressed an interest in becoming involved in the up and coming events organised by ‘Surfers Against Sewage’.
