24 schools from the Halton Catholic District School Board received EcoSchools certification for the 2018-19 school year!
 
EcoSchools​ is an environmental education program that encourages school communities across the province of Ontario to develop their ecological literacy and environmental practices. 
 

2018-19 Certification Highlights

This year alone:

 

  • 3 schools received Bronze Certification
  • 2 schools received Silver Certification
  • 16 schools received Gold Certification
  • 3 schools received Platinum Certification
     
We are thrilled to announce that the eco-team at Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Elementary School​ received Platinum Certification for their hardwork, dedication and inventiveness towards sustainable initiatives at their school. 

Students and staff participated in a number of activities, including the creation of a worm compost bin, and iWalk Wednesdays each week, encouraging students to walk, bike or rollerblade to school. A field trip to the Halton Waste Management site also took place, which gave students a new perspective on where their waste goes. 
 
Congratulations to all participating schools for the incredible work accomplished this year in improving their eco-footprint and environmental awareness! Visit our website to learn more about our HCDSB Ontario EcoSchools​.
