CREATING A LEARNING COMMUNITY AT ÉCOLE SECONDAIRE RONALD-MARION

Senior students armed with the skills to conduct stream water quality assessments mentored their school’s grade 9 students in going wild, completing a study of the stream behind their Pickering, ON secondary school. “I learned how climate can have an impact on our environment and the factors we have to consider before studying it. I found the experience informative and interesting and liked that we got to learn from people who had more experience than us.” -Aimée, Grade 9

ENVISIONING NEW SCHOOLYARD SPACES

In Florenceville Bristol, NB, individual students at Bristol Elementary School envisioned what their schoolyard should look like to help welcome wildlife. Taking pen to paper, students drafted their plans and the result was a butterfly garden to attract species, provide habitats and a location where students can actively learn. From start to finish, students learn about the planning and execution phase. In following years, the space will be expanded to include bird houses to welcome even more species.
