SURFERS ENVIRONMENT PROJECT DROPS IN ON 1500 PRIMARY SCHOOL TEACHER
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 February 2005: - - Over 1500
primary schools across the country have received an invitation to enter a first
of its kind environmental competition run by Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) and
ONeill. The competition aims to get school classes to undertake school projects
that help inform or educate about the damaging issues facing our seas from
issues like sewage pollution, beach litter, climate change and toxic chemicals.
SAS have organised the project following a £10,000 donation from leading
boarding company ONeill.
The SAS/ONeill Marine Environment Project aims to get classes thinking
more about water environment issues through classroom and out-of-classroom
activities. The project packs are designed for the Key Stage 2 PSHE curriculum
and come complete with information sheets and teacher notes.
The project first and foremost helps pupils to talk about their opinions and
explain their views on issues that affect themselves and the environment.
However 5 schools, judged to have designed the most creative projects will win a
day out with SAS and ONeill in Cornwall to see the best of our marine
environment with Orca Seafaris boat tour along Cornwalls south coast, fun SAS
education workshops to take place the National Maritime Museum and a chance to
meet some of ONeills top professional surfers.
Schools must register with SAS by 14th February. Documentation of their
environment saving class project should reach SAS by 17th March - the birthday
of Jack ONeill founder of the wetsuit. A judging panel will then convene on
the 15th April to determine the 5 school classes with the best projects that
will visit Cornwall during the week 18th to 22nd July 2005 to enjoy an action
packed day with SAS and ONeill.
Richard Hardy, SAS Campaigns Director says: Educating the next generation
has always been very important to SAS as we believe they have the power to help
safeguard the future of our watery planet. This project is the second undertaken
by SAS in recent years following the success of our secondary schools
Citizenship learning resource. ONeills Paul Wilkinson says: Were
delighted to be able to support Surfers Against Sewage and to invest in a
project that sows the seeds for protecting and conserving our oceans through the
primary schools curriculum.
