On Saturday, March 25th, students from St. Jean de Brebeuf CHS in Woodbridge participated in the city of Vaughan's Earth Hour event.
The school's EcoClub members participated in a game of "Environmental Jeopardy" where it won in a landslide victory. The team was awarded a prize of $250 to help with the school's eco initiatives.
Students also enjoyed viewing the various exhibits that were set up at the Earth Hour event, including ones on: how much carbon a tank of gas puts in the atmosphere; the energy required to light one bulb; and mixing a smoothie using your own power. Guests over the age of 21 also had an opportunity to test drive a Tesla. Students were given white spruce and white cedar seedlings that they plan to plant to help green the school's outdoor classroom.
