On Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 10o’clock, our QISS students all assembled together in the blue building of Shi Lao Ren Beach. When everybody arrived, Ms. Rust explained how to clean up the beach and also distributed the tools for clean up. Then students divided into groups and did their work. Before we got into the beach, everyone thought the beach was really clean, pretty and don’t need to clean up. But when we started and walked around, there were many things that shouldn’t be in the beach. Whenever students completed a trash bag they gathered them in one place and assembled to the place where Ms. Rust asked us to wait. Students were really busy and were quite exhausted so after they finished, they ate some candied haws on a stick for dessert. There were really many trash bags that we collected. It’s really a pretty beach and I don’t know why people made the beach like this. We planned to play at the beach after cleaning up, but everyone was tired so we just took pictures of everyone and got home. I was tired but we all had fun and wished we could stay longer.
Students, parents, friends, and staff come to celebrate the day together. We had lots of fun activities and everyone participated well. We shared wonderful memories together.
