Green Schools Stories
Dr. T.L. Sullivan Middle School held a Healthy Living Day recently, and they invited the students form Sydney Mines Middle School to join them - two Green Schools partnering up for one event!
The students toured around to different presenters to learn about living healthy. The art teacher and Green Schools Engagement Officer Bailey Oake partnered up for one station and each student got to design their own tile representing what healthy living means for them.
École Acadienne de Pomquet has a team of enthusiastic and caring students from Grades 7-12 working together as the "Club of Hope" in which they aim to bring positive initiatives to their school community. During Engagement Officer Josée’s visit they discussed energy, sources of energy and the ways we can reduce energy, followed by ways to use an energy meter and timed power bar.
