The Board’s Environmental Stewardship Committee meets several times a year to translate environmental concerns into action through building resources, forming coalitions and challenging schools and their communities to get involved in preserving our planet and future. There is an Environmental Stewardship Committee in every school, working throughout the school year to address independent needs and foster a healthy dialogue within classrooms.

Learning Technologies is working on energy management initiatives with the conversion of network equipment to energy efficient systems. The department implemented several automated systems to ensure the appropriate shut-down of equipment, realizing additional energy savings.
The artwork showcased in the graphical banner at the top of this page is a photograph of a wall mural created by the students and staff at Assumption Catholic School in Vanier in October 2008. This art project was done in support of our Board's Spiritual Theme in 2008, We Care for God's Creation.
