On Sunday 4 March, students of Ormiston College were exclusively invited to participate in Clean-Up Australia Day alongside the Marine Research and Rescue Team at Sea World. This opportunity had the students travelling aboard the Sea World rescue boats across to Wave Break Island for the national clean-up initiative.
This wonderful experience allowed students to have a firsthand insight into the impact pollution has on our marine life and better understand the role Sea World play in protecting the species that inhabit the Gold Coast waterways. The clean-up effort from all students was amazing, collecting numerous bags of rubbish that would have found its way in the ocean.
Erin Wyatt, Education Supervisor at Sea World said, “The students of Ormiston College were absolutely fantastic and made the Sea World annual clean up event a real success.”
Upon completion of the clean-up activities students were invited to explore Sea World for the remainder of the day to further understand the importance of marine conservation.
