Making a world of difference
Posted 04/25/2016 04:01PM

Students, faculty and staff across all three divisions united last week to celebrate “Earth Week.” Earth Day was celebrated around the world on Friday, 22 April, and students participated in a variety of activities in the preceding four days.

The cafeteria supported the cause with a 'meatless Monday,' and on ‘choose-to-use-less Tuesday’ students and staff were encouraged to make more conscious efforts to recycle paper and plastic. Members of the community swapped their cars for their trainers on ‘walk-to-school Wednesday,’ and on ‘thoughtful Thursday’ students created pledges to hang on the ‘Eco-pledge Tree’ on display in the School Center Foyer.

The tree was set up by Ms. Raza ’93 and the Grade 7 service learning class. On Friday it was unveiled, showing off a multitude of colorful, decorated leaves, each bearing its own personal pledge to help make the world a better place. 

“I will use less paper to allow trees to live longer!”
“I will buy less stuff. For everything I buy, I will give something else away.”
“I will turn the tap off when I brush my teeth.”
“I promise that I will not use a car, taxi or bus unless I have to go somewhere far."

Keep up the good work, ASL!
