Waste Management in the Classroom
Our vision for Canada is… to have more farm walls, plant more native species, and to save water. The issues which are important to us/our school community are water conservation, recycling and reusing products.”
Based on attending the EcoLeague Youth Forum on October 24, 2017, we learned about sustainability topics and skills such as how to produce organic food such as tomatoes, etc. We learned how much clean water there is on earth and the issues related to soil, water conservation, recycling, and pollution reduction. To fix these issues, some actions we could take are to have each classroom pitch in to having a compost and recycling bin. We hope that by the end of the school year, we will have a healthy community. We will have more ways to help our environment. community, animal conservation, have salad bars, and more vegetarian students.
After receiving funding from Learning for a Sustainable Future, we purchased various percussion type of materials & items from local antique, consignment, re-purposed and thrift stores as well as to fastening materials to create our own upcycle percussion instruments.
Reflection & Celebration
We featured the finished projects at the YRDSB annual Building Nature Connection Eco-Fair. Many individuals of all ages were involved/participated/engaged with all the community and eco-partners as well as workshops and the percussion instruments. We connected with a GTA busker who does bucket drumming and he was there to help support and teach others along with our students.
