The Early Act students of DCMS have committed to doing a community clean-up in each of the settlements in South Eleuthera. Last weekend, the group did an extra special cleaning of The Ocean Hole Park in honor of Earth Day. The park, famous for its blue hole, was having a fair that evening. Students cleaned the paths and bushes of trash before realizing that there was a lot of floating debris in the actual blue hole. Not to be deterred, seven students jumped in fully clothed and recovered 2 bags of Styrofoam, miscellaneous plastic bags, a sinking kayak and chunks of wood!
On Thursday, 20 students from Deep Creek Middle School were chartered as the first Early Act Club on Eleuthera. Early Act stands for “early action” and is a service club for primary and middle school children in the family of Rotary International. The students were awarded their charter and pins in front of an audience of about 100 students, family members and guests from The Island School. Read more here.
