Bears Help Re-green Sudbury

May 29, 2003 - The Environmental Club at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School under the guidance of Ms. Monika Jost planted over 1,300 red and white pine seedlings to help beautify the school grounds and the Sudbury region recently. The seedlings which were planted over a three-day period were donated by the City of Greater Sudbury’s Environmental Department.

In addition, students of the school’s Environmental Club took part in Sudbury's first annual Envirothon on May 2nd, hosted by Science North. Students had a great day of testing and St. Benedict took home first prize. The St. Benedict Bears team then travelled to Lindsay ON to compete in the provincial Envirothon Competition. Students were tested in the areas of Forestry, Aquatics, Wildlife and Soils and had to put together an oral presentation addressing the issues associated with Urban Sprawl. Students were also involved in a community service project and took part in special interest workshops. St. Benedict won the Rookie award, placing first among all first-year teams.

The St. Benedict Envirothon team is composed of students; Marcella Verrilli, Carly Nichols, Julia Sporer, Sarah Moulaison and Stacey Vendramin. The contact teacher/advisor is Ms. Monika Jost at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School. If you require additional information or would like to find out more about the Environmental Club please contact Ms. Jost at 523-9235.
