Bishop P.F. Reding and Jean Vanier​ Catholic Secondary Schools in Milton were busy taking part in sustainability initiatives this semester. Students and staff participated in a variety of activities such as "BR Goes Green!" campaign and a reinvention of the Green Station.

As another example of ongoing sustainability initiatives at the HCDSB, the Green Station in the atrium at Jean Vanier Catholic Secondary School has been redeveloped into a mobile device charging area. Getting its power from newly installed solar panels on the roof of the school, the charging area contains both USB and wireless docks that will recharge a phone or mobile device. Students have been encouraged to view the energy data that is displayed on the Green Station TV monitor.

Bishop Reding’s Eco Team also held an assembly for the entire school community on November 30th to kick off their “BR Goes Green!” campaign. A representative from the Halton Region Waste Management team was there to educate staff and students on the life cycle of waste, and also to raise awareness on the partnership between the Halton Region and the HCDSB in improving waste diversion at our secondary schools.

Special thanks to our students, school staff, and Steve Allum, Manager of Energy and Environmental for their dedication and support to environmental initiatives across the Board! ​​​​​​​​​
