Cherry Crest Environmental Impact Club taking their learning from classroom to community

These next generation changemakers from our school district were invited to share “Environmental Sustainability Education” with students (grade 2-6), at a local non-profit organization at Bellevue Northwest Art Centre (NWAC), recently. Students from the Environmental Impact Club are building two-way partnerships between the school and the wider community and sharing learnings around environmental stewardship, bringing energy conservation, recycling, composting and pollution prevention ideas with schools and communities.

Kudos to these creators of our future world, for making a positive impact on our environment and making their communities more sustainable.
