Elementary and secondary schools of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board celebrated their year-end wrap up for the Destination Conservation Program at Science North recently. The program is designed for school boards to improve their energy use, water consumption and waste management practices. The lead students and teachers involved in this special conservation project completed technical audits and lifestyle campaigns throughout the school year, and were rewarded for their efforts with special certificates, an IMAX film and science demonstrations. |
A co-operative team of students, teachers, principals, custodians and parents work together with Destination Conservation partners to help schools conserve resources and protect the environment. In addition, DC implements and monitors conservation activities within schools, which help, reduce waste while at the same time saves money. The boards’ partners and sponsors including Earth Care Sudbury, Union Gas Limited, and The John Dearness Environmental Society were also present at this event.
