The Sudbury Catholic District School Board in conjunction with the Dearness Society took the opportunity to thank the Destination Conservation Teams from each school by inviting them to a special celebration at Dynamic Earth recently. Several lead students along with the Destination Conservation Teachers attended the event held|
in their honour for their on-going efforts and support throughout the
last school year, in the Destination Conservation Program. Participants were given a tour of Dynamic Earth which included a visit to the “Earth and McLeod Rock Galleries” a viewing of the “Nickel City Stories” and an underground guided tour of the INCO Chasm.
While at “Dynamic Earth” students and teachers were presented with
Certificates of Appreciation, gifts and tree seedlings for their
Destination Conservation classes. The gifts were graciously provided by numerous sponsors including INCO, Union Gas, Nelson, GTK Press, Oxford Press, and Earthcare Sudbury. The organizers of the event were Pauline Therrien, SCDSB Curriculum Contact, Mark Gervais, SCDSB Energy Coordinator, and Eric Foster, Managing Director of the Dearness
Society. Barb McDougall Murdock, from Eathcare Sudbury also addressed
the participants at the end of the celebration.
