DCMS students are currently studying in their School Without Walls unit. Grade 8 is looking at the effect of plastics on the environment, ocean and human health. They are conducting sand samples at local beaches, trawling for plastic in the Exuma Sound gyre and will be writing speeches that encourage individuals to make a change to tackle the pervasiveness of plastic. At the end of their unit, they will conduct a youth conference to share their knowledge with other young people in Eleuthera.
DCMS students are currently studying in their School Without Walls unit. Grade 7 is conducting an eco-system study of Jack’s Bay and comparing it to other marine environments like the reef at Fourth Hole. Next weekend they will travel to the Exuma Land and Sea Park for an overnight camping and snorkeling trip. Student Zachary Carey took these photos of their snorkeling trip last week.
