25 September, PADI Project Aware Clean-up Day

Yesterday was PADI Project Aware Clean-up Day, and since we tend to keep our island tidy at all times, we helped the Enuk Island Community with the cleaning of their island. Current guests Nicola, Megan, Elly & Uschi all volunteerd to dive and clean the channel between the two islands that make up Enuk Island.

Many thanks go to Steve Wannell from Scubapro-Uwatec for donating mask & snorkel sets, to the guys & girls from Dive Adventures and to Hutch from Surf Travel Company for donating other prizes such as pencils, books, water colours, balls and stacks more.

Here are some photos from a fun morning:

The kids are off to collect the rubbish

Rubbish from the other side of the island arrives
by dugout canoe
Time for sorting and separating!

The dive team arrives back at the collection point
from cleaning the channel

While we wait for the kids to return with the rubbish,
Dietmar takes a picture of this great school project:
Re-forestation of mangrove trees just outside the school!
The prize table, with the kids waiting for the weighing
to begin to find out who has collected the most

First of the mark for measuring her collection is little
Jenny (in front, pulling her blue/white striped top UP)

One, two, three, many!  While Dietmar and the head
teacher work out who has won in which category......
... the kids line up for bisquits......
.... and ice-cold cordial

The piles are getting smaller and smaller each year!
It seems that our efforts are paying off, which is
fantastic news!
