The Waterfront School – an eco-friendly school
The Waterfront School is an eco-friendly school. Our school earned the silver ecoschools certification in 2011. This year we continue to strive to work with more determination to become a gold certified ecoschool. We have been involved in many events this year to boost our eco-friendly awareness. Our school participated in and won the Waste- Free Lunch Challenge last October. Our school was one of 30 grand prize winners in the province of Ontario. We continue to strive to reduce waste at school and we are reminded to pack waste-free lunches each and every day.
We actively participate in clean up events. Our school has an ECO Club as well as a Nature Film Club and a Gardening Club that run over the lunch hour and some days after school. The ECO Club helps protect endangered animals by raising funds for WWF. ECO Club members also make presentations to classes, parent meetings and whole school assemblies about being environmentally friendly. We hand out a certificate each month to the most eco-friendly class according to how well they fill in their energy charts.
We are proud of the Waterfront achievements in the area of environmental awareness and education and of how working on the environment has brought us together in working as a whole school team.
Way to go, Waterfront!
