Recent school group outings

July 2021: Students from Oak Tree Special Educational Needs School in Truro came to see us as part of their Eco Week. We met at The Gannel Estuary. Some students had a talk about plastic and participated in a litter pick. All of the students went crabbing. They learnt how to make a friendly crab line, the crabbing code of conduct and all about crab behaviour ecology. All the crabs were released 🙂

Sept 2021: 10 students from Oak Tree Special Educational Needs School in Truro went out on a boat.  The Atlantic Diver (Newquay Sea Safaris and Fishing) from Newquay harbour. Some of the children had not been on a boat before and may not have been afforded the opportunity to. We had a fantastic time and were able to discuss topics like tides, weather, sonar, engines and marine life. We pulled up a lobster pot and had a look at our catch too.Some feedback we received from the children were” It was probably one of the best things I have ever done” “It was super good because we were really deep””We went to see the lobster box and it had two in there!”

Sept 2021: Students from the ‘Learn You Way’ programme met us on Towan Beach. We had an outdoor classroom session around plastics in the environment, a visit from the aquarium with some of its inhabitants and a litter pick. The students were enthusiastic and very keen to meet the huge crabs!

October 2021: We were able give a short presentation around plastics and facilitate a beach clean for a church youth group from City Life Church in Truro. The group cleaned up at Fistral beach where they removed 3kg of litter from the environment!

Please contact us if you have a group or school request. We would be more than happy to help
