Chedabucto Education Centre’s theme for their Earth Day was all about trees!
The students planted 12 large fruit trees: 2 cherry, 2 peach, 2 plum, 2 pear, 4 apple, and some haskap bushes. To learn more about haskap berries visit http://haskap.ca/. They still have some blueberry and currant bushes to plant.
The Litterless/WasteLess Lunch initiative went over well with the Grade 4/5 class as the winners. The school also participated in the Lights Out Canada Challenge (map image here: http://lightsoutcanada.tpweb.ca/) and encouraged everyone to go paperless.
The Green Team also wrapped up the Plastic Grab Challenge with 1573 bags collected from P-6. They intend to enter this in the Walmart contest. Learn more here: http://simplyrecycle.ca/plastic-bag-grab-challenge/
The day was finished off with a presentation in the auditorium by Dr. Bo about being a global citizen, and every student left with a white or red pine to plant!
