Climate Action Week

Here is a photo of all the entries  that were collected for Climate Action Week. Children at every level drew pictures and wrote about what measures they are putting in place to reduce our carbon footprint.

The standard of entries was so high at every level.
The children highlighted all the ways they reuse, reduce and recycle at home and at school.  They also highlighted all the ways they conserve  water and energy at home and there were terrific suggestions for the ways we can conserve energy at school!
The Green Schools Committee would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for all their wonderful entries!
