garbage audit for eco schoolsWe are delighted to announce that, in our first year as an EcoSchool, we  achieved Silver Status!
In the 2018-2019 school year, we have hosted garbage audits, electricity use audits, boomerang lunches, increased our recycling, added Breakfast Club composting, attended the Best Foot Forward conference, and helped to tidy our neighbourhood areas with a local trash bash.  Our students are continually looking for ways to reduce their Eco footprint and have also entered the World Water Day and Global Warming video contests.  

At ALCDSB we embrace our call to be stewards of God's Gift of Creation. In the context of student success, stewardship takes on a holistic meaning encompassing stewardship of the environment, self and those around us. With this in mind, Outdoor and Environmental Education programming within the ALCDSB seeks to engage our students, Kindergarten through Grade 12, in authentic, integrated learning experiences within the natural environment and within the school community. Engagement levels are high at our Outdoor Centres as students are physically active while exploring the interconnectedness of living things. 

Within the school community our students continue to participate in Ontario Ecoschools, a rigorous, province-wide certification program which is the vehicle for the Ministry of Education's Policy Framework for Environmental Education in Ontario Schools. The Ontario Ecoschools program places eco-action directly within the sphere of student influence leading to a sense of empowerment and meaningful participation in the local community.
