Becoming an Eco-School
The Eco-Schools program is an ideal way for schools to embark on a meaningful path towards improving the environment in both the school and the local community while at the same time having a life-long positive impact on the lives of young people, their families, school staff and local authorities.

December 14th, 18th and 19th: In collaboration with the Middle School Science Department and Valueloops, a waste characterization and analysis was conducted with Middle School students. The objective for this project was to expose our students to the realities of our waste management practices. The overall conclusion was that the school does not have a proper waste management system in place but this provides us with plenty of room for growth. Students were engaged and had an eye-opening experience.
