Eco Night a Great Success – Thank you.

8 May

Thank you to everyone who came out last night to the “Let’s Get Eco Friendly” event. Students, Parents, and staff enjoyed all of the rotating stations set up, the planting, the organic market and learning about how to be more environmentally conscious with our board’s consultants and Child Environmentalist Hannah Alper. The electric car parked outside our school brought in by Windfall Ecology Centre was a big hit – students, parents, and staff enjoyed viewing it (Click here for photo). Everyone loved the free goodie bags too! Thank you for the great turnout – the event was a huge success!
