NEWS RELEASE
SIMCOE COUNTY DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD
******************************
Schools across the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) were awarded 18 Ontario EcoSchools certifications this school year. Each elementary, secondary and alternative secondary school that participated in the program went above and beyond, adapting to the challenges of this school year in order to achieve certification.

This school year, the SCDSB achieved:
    •    Seven platinum (Ardagh Bluffs PS, Barrie North CI, Connaught PS, Hillsdale ES, Lake Simcoe PS, Nantyr Shores SS, Orchard Park ES)
    •    Eight gold (Admiral Collingwood PS, Boyne River PS, Chris Hadfield PS, Codrington PS, Minesing Central PS, Simcoe Alternative SS – Bradford Campus, Warnica PS, West Bayfield PS)
    •    One silver (Forest Hill PS)
    •    One bronze (Johnson Street PS)
    •    One participant (Huron Park PS)

Ontario EcoSchools status is obtained by implementing environmental initiatives within schools, including recycling programs, waste-free lunches, energy conservation programs and school ground greening projects. Certification promotes hands-on actions that students can take to make their schools more environmentally friendly.
