College Students' Clean-Up

The month of May saw students from St Aloysius College dedicating their time and effort to two clean-up sessions, at Ras il-Qammieh (l/o Mellieha) and Fomm ir-Rih. Both were part of the Sixth Form's Adventure Plus Programme.

For the first session, 45 Sixth Form students and accompanying teachers had enough courage to face the scorching heat and clean part of the beach in Mellieha which is inaccessible to cars and thus almost impossible to clean up. A one hour walk through rough terrain ended up in a quiet area peppered with plastic bottles washed inland by the sea. Armed with gloves and garbage bags, the area was soon transformed once again into the pleasant spot nature intended it to be.

The second clean up, at Fomm ir-Rih, was held a week later. 40 students attended the event. The walk started off from Bahrija. A view from the cliffs immediately made everyone aware that the clean up was no 30 minute dash. It took the students and their teachers almost 2 hours to finish off the job.   

A big thank you goes to all those involved – Ms Vanessa Portanier and Mr David Azzopardi for the organisation of the event as well as Fr Joseph Cassar, Mr Alfred Farrugia and Mr Jean Pierre Portanier for attending and making the event possible.
