Restoring The Dunes!

The Year 5&6 kids have been working with the Eastbourne Dune Society to learn about, and help restore, the dunes.  Judith McDougal, a founding member of the EDS, came into Room 14 spent time educating us about why native dune plants are so important.  Next a group of ten students from room 14 went to the beach and helped weed and plant out a section of the dunes.  We have actually adopted a section of the beach as our own taonga- it is just in front of the Eastbourne Community Centre.  It was amazing to see the damage that the big storm has caused- Lucky we are going to be helping the EDS, because the clean up is a huge job!
