BVG joins NEW Blue Schools intitative from the Toronto Zoo

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Getting in on the ground floor, Bayview Glen has signed up for the Toronto Zoo's new environmental programme called Blue Schools. This exciting initiative has merged members of Young Round Square and the Prep School Green Team. (The environment is one of the six key pillars of Round Square) Both groups were in attendance for a special presentation by Melissa Bauch, a Blue Schools representative from the Toronto Zoo.

She highlighted the importance of greater awareness around water conservation and the need to think more carefully about our water usage. The students will work together throughout the year on plans for a full school water audit and recommendations for improved conservation on campus. The student group will be responsible for writing and presenting an action plan by April. The goal is to reach level one in the Blue School certification process. Stay tuned for more updates.
