Congratulations to Duncan Cran Elementary School for winning the Top School in the Classroom Energy Diet Challenge! Here is the release below from http://energydiet.canadiangeographic.ca/home/winners
Duncan Cran Elementary School - Fort St John, BC
Duncan Cran Elementary School was the only one in the competition to have 100% participation from every student. For winning the Top School Prize, they receive $1,000 for a school party, $1,000 for school supplies and a $1,000 donation to a charity of their choice.
Christine Todd, Duncan Cran’s vice-principal and science teacher, instructs nine out of 11 classes at the school. She saw the CEDC as a perfect fit to get her students and teachers excited about saving energy.
The school held assemblies to keep students and teachers enthusiastic about the Challenge and tracked points on their CEDC posters. While the competition is now over, Todd says the school will continue with their energy-saving practices, including participating in Drew’s One Hour No Power.
“When you do activities like this and see how kids react, see them thinking,” she says, “ it just inspires you to keep being a better teacher and keep doing these things.”
Another example of SD60 students who are best for the world!
