Education for Sustainability

image description

Students and staff at Happy Thought School have made it a priority to integrate the principles of sustainability into their education programs. This has resulted in a number of waste reduction and recycling initiatives which have helped the school population learn how to incorporate sustainability into their everyday lives. Highlights include the school's outdoor classroom with gardening beds, where students learn to grow vegetables which are later used in school meals and snacks. A group of students representing the school also participated in the "2017 Youth Encouraging Sustainability" conference where they were able to share their initiatives with others.
