Photos: CedarBridge Students, KBB Clean Up

September 22, 2014

CedarBridge Academy’s Teen Girls in Focus group helped with the Keep Bermuda Beautiful clean-up of Pontoons in Spanish Point on Saturday [Sept 20], and recorded data on what they found, with bottle caps and cigarette butts the most frequently recorded items.

Ms. Alicia Zuill, who has been the team leader of Teen Girls in Focus since its inception explained that the girls, who are used to community service had an interesting experience not just with the clean up, but with the recording of data.

Ms Zuill said, “Students were amazed at what they found, and the items they collected the most were bottle caps and cigarette butts.”

Students worked with an itemized list and had to record all items found. Other than cigarette butts and bottle caps, students found glass, construction items, plastics, paper, tissues, water bottles and other sensitive items.

The students were joined by Jeanne Atherden, Minister for Health, Seniors and the Environment.

“The Environment is my portfolio,” said Minister Atherden, “I had to come out and join the clean up effort. I am enjoying working with the students.”

The young ladies of TGIF included Laree Talbot, Diana Arruda, Shyiesha Dowling, Hadiyah Barnett, Jordyn Ming, Kavwona Richardson, Talshay Robertson, Sahrae Robertson, Jahstice Trott, Shundre Zuill and Daesha Smith. One male student Malik Wilson, participated with the cleanup.

  1. Thanks to everyone / anyone that has taken part in cleaning up some of Bermuda unsightly debris. Seeing it has become far too common when one travels about the Island...whether by road or sea :-(

    • Congratulations to the young people from CedarBridge's Teen Girls in Focus for their positive efforts in cleaning up Bermuda's Park and seashore. It is disturbing to see the blatant disrespect of our beautiful environment. Hopefully, the persons responsible for the trash (bottle caps, etc) will respect the young people's hard work and put their trash in proper trash bags and receptacles. Fantastic job, CBA TGIF and all those who support them! ( kudos to the former Francis Patton School students - PROUD OF YOU!)

  2. YES I says:

    More energy should be spent congratulating and supporting events like these. I encourage people to celebrate this rather than commenting on the politrick stories of the day.

    I applaud your efforts ladies of Cedarbridge and am grateful to be Bermudian knowing that your commitment to this island is shown in such a way.
