Dunbarton High School Leaves Their Mark

Home/Giving, Living, Seeing, Surfing/Dunbarton High School Leaves Their Mark

Last month we were fortunate enough to have the help of a high school group from Dunbarton High School located in Pickering, Ontario; a suburb of Toronto. They spent ten action packed days with us volunteering and enjoying jungle life on Bastimentos Island.  With their help we were able to complete the following: two bathroom/septic tanks for the community, finished the community garden, finished 104 stairs to the playground, cleaned up and prepped the library, collected over 25 bags of trash around the bay, converted preschool walls to all wood, painted preschool walls, and added a mural to our bookshelves.  In addition to all their hard work they had great times doing catamaran tour, zip lining, trip to Smithsonian, cave tour, and enjoying the beach.

We would like to thank all of you for working so hard during your time here as well as fundraising at home.  Of course none of this would be possible without the teachers as well.  You are a special group of teachers to have the stamina to keep up with the kids and survive the jungle!
