Schools are sustainable communities
The grade 5 & 6 students at St. Henry Catholic School built an outdoor classroom for the entire school to enjoy. In addition, this school community has banned the use of plastic water bottles, has significantly reduced their garbage by 75 percent, practices an anti-idling policy, engaged in an environmental stewardship campaign using story boards posted around the school, and encourages students to bring litter-less lunches.
