Students of the Tachibana Girls High School, Yokohama, Japan, in Christchurch to learn English, will clean up part of Southshore beach and plant trees on Wednesday 1 August.
About 20 students from the high school come to Christchurch each year and each year they carry out voluntary work during their stay. This year about five girls have returned for another term.
The girls will be starting their Coast Care conservation programme at 9.30am on Wednesday 1 August.
They will start at the corner of Caspian Street and Marine Parade. After the beach clean up they will plant trees in the Southshore Reserve, an area previously planted by Tachibana students.
This will be the fifth year a group has visited for study at the Canterbury Language College and undertaken conservation work.
