I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Davisville Jr. Public School/MTSD is now a Gold Certified EcoSchool! This is a major achievement for our school. After only one full school year we have achieved significant results in implementing environmental Teamwork and Leadership, Energy Conservation, Waste Minimization, School Ground Greening, Curriculum, Environmental Stewardship.
So many people have been working hard to make the changes necessary to earn this prestigious accreditation. Under the leadership of Mme Cenac, Ms. Breslaw, Mme (Fitzpatrick) Potter and Mme Savelli the children of the eco-club deserve a lot of praise for inspiring the staff and students to watch the waste, turn out the lights and be generally mindful of our impact on the planet.
We also had parents coming out every ABC/JSA day, helping with Earth Week, digging up the dirt in our new garden and cutting waste in our snack programme.
Our efforts to involve students, staff, parents and the community in our greening plan did not go unnoticed and were commended in the audit.
If you would like more information on the EcoSchools certification or would like to get involved in any of our programmes, please contact us.
