Volunteer Team – Beach-Cleaning Service Day

Date: 25/5/2024, 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Venue: Approach Beach, 10 1/2 milestone, Castle Peak Road, Ting Kau

The issue of ocean waste, particularly plastic waste, has become a matter of great concern. Plastic decomposition in water creates “microplastics” that are absorbed by marine organisms, entering the food chain and affecting human health. In response to the problem, the government launched the “Plastic Free” campaign on April 22nd. Our school aims to enhance our students’ awareness of waste issues in Hong Kong and connect their science and biology knowledge to understand the problem better. This beach cleanup is part of our environmental awareness program for this school year.

Thanks Green Hope Hong Kong for organizing this event. 19 students attended training workshops on April 9th, and 17 students participated in the beach cleanup. They collected a total of 72kg of trash, mostly plastic waste. Most students had not joined cleanup services before, but they expressed interest in participating again in the future. This activity has successfully raised awareness and inspired our students to take further action.
