A huge congratulations to Duke on another incredible year of environmentally focused actions.  Duke has achieved platinum certification for the second year in a row! This is an incredible achievement and is due in large part to our very hardworking Eco team who has worked all year long to create and implement initiatives around the school and our community.  This achievement was also made possible because of the incredible work being done inside each and every classroom in our school.  Environmentally focused lessons and activism work is being done on a large scale at Duke and it is what has helped achieve this incredible honour.  A true collective effort! Congratulations Duke! - Mme. Prokop, Mr. Pedlar
