George P. Mackie Junior Public School is comprised of 150 of the most environmentally enthusiastic students you may ever come across. Holding Eco Club meetings twice a week and having student leaders promote their green bin program, while also teaching their fellow pupils how to use their energy saving and recycling bins whenever possible, George P. Mackie Junior Public School is undoubtedly making many conscious efforts to help keep our environment healthy and clean.
Having already achieved a Silver EcoSchool status, the goal of this year's Eco Club is to be able to attain a Gold level standing through the Ontario EcoSchools program. So, in addition to the many tulips and daffodils they planted around their school in the fall to spruce up their immediate surroundings, staff and students have decided to create the Mackie Junior Public School Eco Forest, which is an online representation of the real trees the school has helped to plant to restore some of Canada's most sacred lands. As every virtual tree seen online mirrors a real life tree that is planted by The Carbon Farmer, this eco-exercise provides an excellent opportunity for staff, parents and other caring community members to teach students about the ways in which their tree planting significantly aids in the restoration of habitat for the native species of plants and animals that call Canada's forests home.
