World Cleanup 2012
After many meetings and planning for the Let’s Do It Thailand, the day arrived. At 9am on Sunday 20th May the bus left Regent’s School en route to Ban Chang. There we were met by 43 Camilian center children and 5 of their staff. With the large Camilian Center group and the Regent’s team, we had short of one hundred participants. Everyone was divided into four colour groups who rotated around doing fun games and activities and cleaning the beach and surrounding areas; however, before we could get started, some fun ice breakers were in order. The team leaders ran various ice breakers from the human knot to hot potato. During the activity times, the children played football and cooled off in the sea, some of them learning how to swim from our older students. Soon lunchtime came and Krumz, our year 7 young enterprise group, had prepared sandwiches, juice boxes, cookies and bananas for the Camilian centre children which was sponsored through Round Square and everyone else headed to the local food vendors and seafood restaurants. Since we were at the beach and it was such a hot day, it seemed to be a waste of opportunity for an ice cream! The Let’s Do It! Thailand group sponsored each Camilian child an ice cream which went down very well. Then we gathered back into groups to continue with the cleaning and the fun, however, more fun was had than cleaning, the sea was just too tempting in the heat of the day. The day was soon coming to an end, with a huge amount of bags filled with rubbish from the beach and a great group photo opportunity. It was an awesome day and we can’t wait until the next one.
