Gold is the New Green

 

Monsignor Doyle started its first ECO Schools committee in 2014, and in its inaugural year earned a Silver certification through Ontario ECO Schools!  This year, we’re going for Gold!

 

One of the five pillars of ECO Schools is School Greening.  At Monsignor Doyle, we have a vision for an outdoor space that will be more widely used by our whole community.   We have identified the need for a more natural environment where there would be  outdoor seating near bus areas, more protective shade areas for students and staff during outdoor activities, and more choices for student meeting spaces, including an outdoor classroom.

We would like this to be our school community greening project.  We invite you to help us by donating materials or money, by sharing your talents and skills, and/or by coming out and digging in.
