Mission Statement: Developed by BNS/BCS Green Committee

A green school is a school building that creates a healthy environment  conducive to learning and teaching while saving energy and resources. A green school community practices and promotes the sustainable use of our limited natural resources through recycling, composting and reducing our waste materials. The Green Committee works collaboratively with parents, teachers, school staff and students to ensure that people learning and working in the school have healthy air to breathe, enjoy maximum access to daylight, spend their time in an environment that connects them to the natural world through plantings and gardens, respect the true value of water and strive to conserve its use. Working together to create a green school provides many opportunities for us to teach and learn as a community about our environment and the ways to live, learn and work in balance with the natural world.
