Promoting responsible living and environmental education
ARE YOU READY TO CHANGE THE WORLD?
We want to start environmental responsibility at a young age.
Certified Silver- Ontario EcoSchools
Last year, Paris Central School is participated in the Ontario ECOSchools program, and we were able to achieve a Silver level of certification. The program requires that we complete assessments and activities in six areas: Teamwork and Leadership, Energy Conservation, Waste Management, Schoolground Greening, Curriculum, and Environmental Stewardship.
This year, we hope to maintain our Silver Certification, or possibly improve to Gold level. The students on our EcoClub have done an excellent job of identifying important environmental issues around the school and making plans to enact positive change.
Please visit our site often to view our progress towards ECOSchools Re-certification. If you have any ideas as to how we can improve our sustainability at the school, or want to help out in any way, please visit our "How You Can Help" page.
If we're destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there's got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
The only way forward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved.
Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
