Join our Beach Art Day 

Tuesday 6th June 2023 

A celebration of the sea

Pembrokeshire schools are invited to Newgale Beach, to build their very own ‘Rocktopusʼ!

The Roots outdoor education project, run by Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Trust and supported by South Hook LNG Terminal, is teaming up with Beach Academy Wales who will facilitate a day of learning on one of the Countyʼs most beautiful beaches!

Teams of up to six will create their own large ‘Rocktopusʼ using natural beach materials such as sand, rocks, shells and seaweed. Other fun activities for the children will include the challenge: “Am I as clever as an Octopus...?ʼ

You must register your interest by FRIDAY 26th MAY 2023

The Terms and Conditions you need to know about...

  • Pupils to work in teams of up to 6. Teams can be mixed year groups.
  • Schools to provide adequate staffing to comply with child : adult ratios. We suggest one adult per team. School staff members will be responsible for the safety of the pupils at all times.
  • Images of the Beach Art will be shared with participating schools.
  • Beach Art can be adorned and decorated using natural colours only. Coloured natural objects can be found or brought to enhance the artwork such as leaves, seaweeds etc. Please note that no permanent paints (acrylic/poster etc) or felt pens/ markers/sharpies will be permitted. Natural chalks and charcoal can be used as they will washoff and are natural materials.
  • There will be no limit on size as Newgale is expansive so artwork can be as big as they wish. Beach Art will be viewed and captured from above with a drone as well as at eye level.
  • Schools will need to provide confirmation that parental/guardian permissions are in place regarding the photographing of each pupil.
  • The Beach Academy team will be on hand to register and organise the day.
  • Teams will be set a start and end time and required to complete their Beach Art in 2 hours.
  • All rocks taken from the banks to be placed back at the end of the day as a continued protection against the tide. Using rocks will also ensure the art doesnʼt blow away as Newgale is famous for the winds!
  • Schools will be responsible for bringing their own equipment for building, creating, decorating and moving the stones such as a wheelbarrow or trolley etc.
  • A completely ‘leave no traceʼ school event on the environment.
  • Schools will be responsible for their own transport.
