Brechin Public School receives award from the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority
Posted on 11/08/2019

On Nov. 7, Brechin Public School was recognized with the Healthy Community Award by the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA). The school’s Eco Team was recognized for educating students about various environmental initiatives, and for planning and leading environmental initiatives in their school and community. Each year, the LSRCA celebrates Lake Simcoe’s watershed heroes with members of the community, elected officials and environmental leaders. 

Some initiatives include a tree planting campaign and a school and community textile drive. In collaboration with the school’s Social Changemakers Group, they also organized a water walk, sharing information about water protection with their local community and donating to an organization that provides clean water to local Indigenous communities.

“Our students have taken a leadership role in educating our school community about environmental issues,” says Allison Beecroft, principal at Brechin Public School. “We’re proud of their efforts, and that they have received this recognition from the LSCRA.”

This initiative links directly to the SCDSB's Strategic Priorities under the pillars of excellence in teaching and learning and well-being.
