BHS students in cleanup projects
Students from Bermuda High School took part in a day of community activity.
During Round Square Day last Friday, students were given responsibilities to help them learn organisational, leadership and teamwork skills.
It was part of a day of activities to celebrate the global spirit of the Round Square Organisation, of which BHS is a member.
Events included cleanup sessions at 12 locations such as Masterworks Museum at the Botanical Gardens, with help from Keep Bermuda Beautiful.
Projects included the removal of invasive plant species on Trunk Island, and taking part in reading, art and games with younger students at West Pembroke Primary, Hope Academy, Port Royal Primary and Francis Patton.
Groups of students also took part in a clean and tidy up of the Meals on Wheels headquarters, reading and visiting with residents at Lefroy House, and painting a mural, and cleaning and weeding at WindReach and removing boat signage at Royal Bermuda Yacht Club.
Anne Hyde from KBB said: “KBB is pleased to assist the Bermuda High School in its celebration of being a Round Square School and help organise morning cleanup activities in a dozen locations.
“This is our second year of partnering on this day of community service and celebration. We are grateful that BHS focuses on the environment as part of their Round Square Ideals.”
Round Square is a worldwide network of 180 schools in 50 countries which helps nurture the qualities that make successful leaders and prepares students to be global citizens through the six ideals of Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service.
