Our students asked - and Alberta Education responded with a great announcement!

We are feeling PROUD of our students - and excited that our work with them is making a difference!  Students' work on “How Alberta Schools should show Climate Leadership”  figured prominently in yesterday's exciting announcement by two Provincial Ministers that new schools will all have solar panels.

Students got a direct shout-out by Minister Eggen: 'We have heard directly from students from across Alberta and their message is clear – they want us to be leaders on climate change."  Here's an important quote from the news release (link above): "Putting solar panels on schools was a recommendation made by students to the Alberta government as a way to demonstrate leadership on tackling climate change.”

Nice coverage by CBC, too!
