The Abaco Swim Club participated in the annual Coastal Cleanup on Saturday, September 19. The Swim Club, along with Justin Higgs from Hope Town School, cleaned the beach behind the Hope Town Pool. The kids were pleasantly surprised with the small amount of garbage actually found on the beach compared to last year. After the cleanup the team practiced in the ocean to get ready for the Abaco Swim Club’s Open Water Swim on October 10, 2015 at the Crossing Dock, Marsh Harbour.
This year marks the sixth year that students from Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada have been assisting at the Every Child Counts School. Nine students have been working at the school for the entire month of May.
