Page Private School Coastal Clean Up day 2011
-- COSTA MESA, Calif., [September 19, 2011] – Students at Page Private School, Newport Mesa, campus spent their Saturday morning protecting the coast and shoreline at Huntington State Beach. More than 70 students, families and friends of Page Private School participated in Coastal Cleanup Day to clean up trash and debris that is harmful to marine wildlife and the environment.
Page Private School students are studying to become “Coastal Stewards” in their community outreach class. Students are learning ways to protect the earth, save water, reduce waste and pollution. Plastic bags, bottle caps, cans and plastic bottles were some of the debris cleaned up by volunteers in their fight to keep local beaches safe and clean.
“It is important for young adults to learn the importance of volunteer work and to give back to their local communities”
says James Shafer, assistant principal, Page Private School. “We have been able to teach our students the effects of pollution on our environment and ways they can help make a difference.”
