The Nature Kids Club have written Letters to the Mayor of Calgary giving him some of our suggestions and asking him what can be done to help our environment.
The Nature Kids Club will participate in Earth Day activities and will invite our Alderman to join us in supporting our initiative for our Planet.
As a result of a school wide waste audit a 3 bin composter was built on our school grounds. The entire school population now participates in composting and collection bins are in all classrooms and common areas. Twice weekly members of the Green Team brings the compost to the outdoor bins.
Students in Grade 5 care for red wiggler worms, composting food waste from their snacks and lunches, and using shredded newspaper and Scholastic book order forms to help balance the compost. Students harvest the compost to use in their indoor classroom garden.
Grade 4 Young Citizen team initiated a classroom composting program in which the team educated and supported their fellow classmates. They collect the organic waste from each classroom and store them in large organic bins. These bins are later sent to a regional organic processing site.
