Students in clean sweep
Two groups of students from Brisbane Water Secondary College's Special Education Unit completed a sweep of the Pearl Beach foreshore on Friday, February 17, as part of an ongoing program to keep the Central Coast's foreshores clean.
The students retrieved only small items of litter from the foreshore but three trips to Lion Island and Middle Head beach also gleaned two bags of small plastic items and a large anchor rope which was cut and removed.
All litter was deposited in the council's bins adjacent to the beach.
Additional tasks were abandoned when the propeller came off their boat's motor.
Coordinator Mr Grahame Johnston said the day allowed the students to have positive networking with the locals and have plenty of recreational fun.
Mr Johnston said he intended to return to Pearl Beach with the group before the end of autumn.
