On September 21, 2012 the entire school participated in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. This year we focused our efforts on cleaning a section of shoreline along the Don River in E.T. Seton Park. The Grade 12 Environment and Resource Management class did a great job serving as “ambassadors” for the event – encouraging participation and furthering the Academy’s commitment to environmental stewardship.
We had a great turnout and collected over 100lbs of garbage that afternoon, and you can continue reading to find out the process of the same. Wildlife sightings included turtles, a rabbit and a fox. Many students commented that they were able to experience a part of Toronto that they didn’t know existed. Special thanks to the Ontario Science Centre for donating cleanup supplies and allowing us to use their recycling and waste facilities.
