The Sunshine Coast Grammar School community will come together to roll up their sleeves and support of the Surfrider Foundation Australia in an effort to clean up Mooloolaba Beach on Saturday, March 3.
As part of the annual Grammar Helping Hands Beach Clean-up, last year the group removed one-hundred and ninety-seven kilos of rubbish, collected from across Moffatt, Shelly and Dicky Beaches in three hours.
Grammar Helping Hands, prides itself on looking outward to others and serving the Sunshine Coast community in times of need, through regular household and backyard makeovers and assisting a range of local charities in their work.
In this instance, the Surfrider Foundation Australia aims to protect Australia’s coastlines through Conservation, Activism, Research and Education with a number of campaigns each year across Australia to help ensure our coastlines are kept as clean as possible.
Coordinator of Community Services at Sunshine Coast Grammar School, Mr Ben Princehorn believes the Beach Blitz is a great opportunity to come together and make a difference to the health of our coastline while having some great fun with colleagues, parents and our students.
“It is important we provide our students with a hands-on approach to giving as part of our program, so they obtain a holistic view to different types of assistance the community needs”, said Mr Princehorn
“We will work to cover as much of the area as possible. We really enjoy working alongside the Surfrider Foundation and supporting their efforts to help keep our coastline beautiful for all to enjoy.”
