Learning through fun

Children enjoy a sand treasure hunt at a previous fun day on Baylys Beach

The Baylys Beach Society is holding a free family fun day at Baylys Beach to support Seaweek 2018 and foster the communities’ appreciation for the environment.

The society is a non-profit organisation that advocates for Baylys residents and the beach environment.

Society chair Leesa Andrewes says she hopes the fun day will enable people to enjoy the environment in a fun and safe way.

“The aim of this event is to bring the community together and raise awareness of our beach, the ocean and the environment.”

Activities for all ages will be on offer such as a sand sculpture competition, a treasure hunt, volleyball, beach cricket and touch rugby.

Seaweek 2018 runs from March 3-11, and is an annual week hosted by the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education and focuses on learning from and about the sea. The theme this year is ‘Toiora te Moana — Toiora te Tangata — Healthy Seas, Healthy People.’

The event will be held on Saturday, March 3 from 3-5pm with the bad weather date set for Sunday, March 4.

There will be a free barbecue from 4pm.
