The Path to Green
One major Green School goal is to change the way we think and behave as a community. We want to reflect "eco-sensitive" choices in all we do, from offering compostable coffee cups and fair-trade coffee through to purchasing and other operational decisions.
We believe our campus can be a classroom. We can educate each other, even when we don't think we're involved in the process of education. For example, we teach our students environmental systems in class. But we also teach in the dining halls and the boarding houses, in the washrooms and the boiler room, along our avenue, on our sports fields and the grounds.
