In school, the children have taken part in a 'Plastic Swim' event. The school swimming pool was filled with a variety of plastic items and then the children swam lengths in the pool, attempting to negotiate the rubbish! After that, everyone worked together to clean all the plastic up.The purpose of this event was to raise awareness around the issue of plastic in the world's oceans and how this is affecting marine life. It was hard to swim in the plastic as it floated around. Whilst the event was fun and enjoyable, it related to a serious issue so hopefully, this memorable event will help us all to think about how we use plastic and about where it could end up.
