When Green School Engagement Officers head into classrooms across Nova Scotia to teach students about Energy Efficiency, we also learn a thing or two along the way. 

In Grade 4 science, students learn about how light is used and interacts with the environment. Students also have the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge as they explore energy efficiency using different light bulbs.

The students and staff at ESK (Mi’kmaq Immersion School) were faced with a tricky situation  this year. They wanted to start composting their food waste, but their community of Eskasoni has yet to have curbside pick up. That, however, didn’t stop this little school from doing their part. The teachers decided to start their own composting program to teach students to be good stewards of the land. One  teacher found a large bin they could use to put their compost in.

Each year, the outdoor spaces at  Dr. JC Wickwire Academy add to their outdoor spaces to improve them. This school year was no exception! They added a traditional Mi’kmaq wigwam.

This project was made possible with leadership from teacher Adam Leuschner and committee, support from Master Craftsman, Elder Todd Labrador, his daughter Melissa Labrador and her family from the Acadia First Nations,  and funding from a ReconciliAction Grant.

Engagement Officer, Kelsey, went to visit Windsor Junction Community Centre to present to their campers for  their Go Green Day. Kelsey met with campers and talked about what we love about being outside, our connection to nature, and how energy efficiency can help our earth!
