Environmental Block

Environmental Block is a two-credit, Grade 10 course that teaches students about the environment through hands-on projects and activities. Students learn how the environment is being affected by our way of living and what we can do as individuals and as a society to care for creation and prevent the environment from being destroyed further.

The E-block program has received several awards from School's in Blooms, including their top Environmental Achievement Award. The class has worked with various partner organizations over the years and was featured in a Toronto Star article. Students have received environmental grants from several organizations, which has allowed us to build a community garden, plant over 200 native trees and shrubs and complete several shoreline restoration projects. Below is a picture of our Environmental Classroom & Project Space:
