This week the children from the kindergarten class of The Parish Church of St. Helena Preschool and Kindergarten in downtown Beaufort visited the store “Totally Beachin” on Bay Street. Ms. Lana Rast, the store owner, and Ms. Carol Evans, were on hand to welcome the children and to show and explain the large variety of shells and coral. Ms. Evans lives in Edisto and has been interested in collecting and studying shells from a very young age. The short walk from the school to the store located at 720 Bay Street made it an excellent location for the 5 year olds to visit.
“This field trip provided hands on experience for the children who are learning about ocean life,” said their teacher Mrs. Joanne Sinisi. “Each child got to observe the homes of animals that lived in these shells. This makes learning very personal and exciting for them.”
