Next, we visited the Ban Chang sorting centre where objects that can be recycled are sorted and then sent to recycling stations. We saw huge piles of cardboard, paper, metal bits and bobs, glass bottles, plastic bottles, etc… We also stood on a giant weighing station (where trucks are weighed) and we found out that Ms. Toni’s class weighs more than Ms. Mara’s class!
We worked hard during the beach clean-up!
Finally, we had lunch on the beach and then had a beach clean-up. We cleaned part of the beach at Ban Chang, and then played on the clean sand at the end! One of the best parts was our reward for doing such a great job on our beach clean-up: ice-cream! Of course, we were very careful to place the ice-cream wrappers in the bin when we had finished.
We wore gloves to keep safe.
We did it! Look at the beautiful clean beach!
