S.O.S.! Save Our Seas. The SSIS community heeded the call of the sea by joining the International Coastal Clean-Up (ICC) last October 4, 2014.

Armed with brooms, sticks, and rakes, the cleaners battled with the garbage on the coast of Sta. Rita Aplaya, Batangas City.

Student Council officers, Grade 10 students, parent and student volunteers, and teachers and staff grouped themselves and set out to finish the monumental task, one small area at a time.

Each group assigned someone to tally the garbage collected, so that the ICC task force can determine what types of garbage fill up our oceans, and from there, counter measures can be adopted. As expected, plastic wrappers (candy, snack, and food wrappers) and drinking straw topped the list.

Responding to ICC is the teachers’ first activity for the Stonyhurst Southville For Others (SSFO), an outreach program that aims to make a difference in the life of others, and in the plight of our seas.
