Fun and Finds at the FTS Beach Clean

On a gloriously sunny afternoon, our boarding community joined over 20 families and staff members from Truro School and Truro School Prep for the annual FTS picnic and beach clean at Watergate Bay.

Led by Rob from Beach Guardian, our beach cleaning crew were provided with gloves, litter pickers and collection bags before they scoured the shoreline to recover buckets of waste including microplastics, glass and plastic bottles, a croc and some pipe insulation.

Some of the more unusual finds included an old badge that might have been a ‘collectable’ from a cereal packet, an entire cuttlefish and a firework rocket (discovered in two parts).

To celebrate the buckets of waste that are no longer clogging our shorelines or entering our waters, each of the children was treated to a delicious ice cream as a thank you for their hard work.

Thanks to Rob and the Beach Guardian Team for their expert advice and support, Lynette and the FTS and all of the boarders, staff and families who joined in the afternoon.
