Energy Conservation Top Priority with Sudbury Catholic Board


October 18, 2006 - The first in a series of Dearness Conservation (DC) inservices for year six took place at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board’s Catholic Education Centre recently. Guest speaker for the afternoon session, Dougal McCreath, (standing) walked the Board’s new DC teachers through a PowerPoint presentation which dealt with the re-greening efforts of Inco from the early 1970's to the present.

The half-day sessions provided an overview of the Dearness Conservation Program, the local Efficient Sudbury Campaign and an on-line overview of the newly developed SCDSB EcoCentre website,

Dearness Conservation is a multi-year program designed for school boards to improve their energy use, water consumption and waste management practices. A cooperative team of students, teachers, principals and custodians work together with DC to help schools conserve resources and protect the environment.
