Well, this school homework was a little different and its that impressive from one of our younger divers with their permission we are sharing it.. Its really poignant and shows real maturity.. There is hope for our oceans yet!
So, what is this homework that has us all going wow...
To create a cushion or wall hanging that represents the beach
Lets generalise now.. I bet most would have instantly gone to a happy place with ice-creams, sandcastles, buckets, spades and happiness.
Well as we know divers always look at the world a bit differently well Thomas immediately thought of the plastic waste that he has seen both in and around the water. Dragging his family along on a rainy night for a walk against debris at the nearby Rutland Water, he produced this piece.
A harrowing piece that tells a story to those that take the time to look, consider, and feel. Thomas’ plea to protect what you love moves beyond the pristine beach, but in to the ocean itself.
We’ve seen Blue Planet, heard what is at risk, so now we need to answer a child’s plea. Make better decisions and clean up after yourself, keep our ocean cleans and save our precious planet.
Art Teacher not impressed but personally I love it, so our congratulations go to Thomas for "Thinking outside the box" and producing something that has a very clear message.
In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught. ~ Baba Dioum, 1968 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
