Earth Day celebrations all week offered by YES!
A new environmental club – YES! (Youth for Environmental Sustainability) has been initiated in our school by four highly motivated and passionate grade 12 students. - Jasveen Braar, Kate Berger, Amber Henderson, and Uzair Jogiat.
So far, they have attracted 30 members to this club and would love to have more involved for future sustainability.
Activities are planned for next week to help celebrate April 22nd Earth Day. YES wants to promote awareness and hope everyone will change practices:
Monday, April 22 : Energy Conservation Challenge
All classes or all TAs are encouraged to take up the challenge.
Examples are: turn off lights, take the class outside, save energy by not using smart boards, encourage recycling etc etc.
Tuesday, April 23: Students from YES! Will be going to TAs to promote recycling and the YES! Club
