Platinum Status Eco School
Jackman Avenue PS is one of 14 Platinum Status Eco Schools in the TDSB. We have a green roof, a number of outdoor learning gardens, a human sundial, and a very active EcoTeam and Gardening Club. The partnership among parents, students and staff is the key to our success. Every fall, all students participate in bulb planting in our school gardens. We have a comprehensive recycling program, and all classrooms and lunchroom have a compost bin, which is dumped weekly into our school compost, which we use to fertilize our gardens. . This year, we have implemented a boomerang lunch, and we are working to develop our eco-literacy curriculum.
