Sudbury Catholic Schools to Participate in Earth Hour

March 26, 2008 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board along with its families of schools will be participating in the WWF’s Earth Hour on Friday, March 28, 2008.

On March 29th at 8:00 p.m. people around the world will turn off their lights for just one hour – Earth Hour – to show it’s possible to take action on climate change. Switching off lights is a simple action that school boards, schools and students can take, but one that helps make a difference and sends a powerful message that we care about our planet. After all, the actions we take today affect the planet students will inherit tomorrow.

Climate change is the biggest environmental threat to our planet and the number one environmental concern of Canadians. By participating in Earth Hour our schools and our students are demonstrating to the world that they want to be part of the solution.

In support of the March 29th initiative, Sudbury Catholic Schools will be taking the lead by turning off lights for one hour, on Friday March 28th. All Sudbury Catholic District School Board staff have also been encouraged to do the same by turning off their office lights for at least one hour during the March 28th workday.

For more information, on Earth Hour, please contact Mark Gervais,
Energy Coordinator for Sudbury Catholic Schools ph: 673-5620 ext: 424.
