ST. JOSEPH’S SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL
April 2013: Banjul, The Gambia (All-Girls School)
UNESCO ASPnet SANDWATCH REPORT, 2013.
The members of UNESCO ASPnet of St. Joseph’s Senior Secondary School are participating effectively in and out of the school to promote the aims and objectives of UNESCO towards human development. It is against this backdrop that we are known in the areas of Environmental Sanitation, Tree Planting and most importantly our popular SANDWATCH activities on the beaches of Banjul.
In April 2013, sixty students from our school visited Dakar, Senegal and we took that opportunity to conduct a SANDWATCH activity on one of the beaches of Dakar, which helped us to compare the rate of Coastal Erosion in Dakar and Banjul.
In May 2013, the members of UNESCO ASPnet of St. Joseph’s Senior Secondary School conducted another SANDWATCH activity on the beach of Banjul, which made us to conclude that coastal erosion is a serious issue for both cities but Banjul is at a higher risk. Therefore we recommend that collective measures be put in in place by the Government and all stakeholders before too late.
