January 5, 2011 - Sudbury Catholic is going green - and not just with its capital projects. In order to align all initiatives with the Board's strategic commitment to live a culture of respectful relationships, the Sudbury Catholic District School Board is on the verge of creating and maintaining a high quality, healthy environment for students, staff and visitors, through the use of effective, environmentally responsible, certified products/equipment and cleaning processes. As a result, the Board has created a Green Clean committee comprised of administrators, facility services staff, principals, vendors, custodial staff and students. Team members are: Principals Laura Kuzenko and Judith Way, Custodians Rick Boudreau and Dan Deault, students Joey Fyfe and Nick Cassio, Operations Foreperson Mark Vincer, Facility Administrator James Morgan and Communications Officer Gina Tullio. This committee will begin to support and promote the development, implementation and ongoing monitoring of a Green Clean Program as set out by the Ministry of Education of Ontario.

The SCDSB Facility Services Department put the team together in order to help create and promote the vision of practicing environmentally conscious and low impact cleaning processes to the betterment of all internal and external stakeholders. The program will be piloted at St. Francis Elementary School as well as St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School beginning in the spring of 2011.

Catherine McCullough, SCDSB Director of Education commended the newly formed team for their commitment to this very important initiative and looks forward to its full implementation throughout the entire Board. "I am very proud of this initiative for Sudbury Catholic, "McCullough stated. "It speaks to our strong commitment to the environment as well as the well-being of our students, staff, parents and community partners. With the support of the Ministry of Education, our Board will continue to ensure that we are champions of the earth and Green Clean is one very important way for us to do this."
