Started in 2003 with 13 schools, the TDSB’s Eco School Program now has over 400 schools across Toronto participating. This program was developed to raise awareness and help students learn about how to become more environmentally responsible. Each year schools submit an online application and have an auditor visit the school to get recertified and keep their status as an Eco School.
Congratulations Eatonville Junior School
Certified Eco School – Gold Status for 2016-17
Eatonville has been certified as an Eco School – Gold status— as a result of the efforts of many staff and students. Continuing the Green Waste program effectively throughout the school, Eatonville has added another initiative - litterless lunch. Other individual efforts included Literacy Day focus on re-cycling, Walk to School Day, Eco Eagles club (students), Eco Team (staff) and bulletin board displays. The Eco School waste audit also featured favourably in Eatonville’s evaluation.
