Plastic Bottle Boat Challenge
Wednesday 27th June 2018
On Wednesday, 40 boys from LP2 and Prep joined 323 other pupils from Merton Schools and a further 6,472 worldwide to take part in the Plastic Bottle Boat Challenge. This was an attempt to set a Guinness World Record for the simultaneous launch of a flotilla of recycled plastic bottle boats whilst raising awareness of plastic pollution. We were successful at Wimbledon Park, but now await the adjudicator’s overall decision for the Guinness World Records. Thank you to all boys involved for their enthusiasm and commitment and to Mrs Hitchcock for coordinating the event, and the staff who supported and supervised the boys.
