Rainbow Schools Celebrate Earth Day in the Dark
Written By: Friday, April 21st 2017

Schools in the Rainbow District Board will be turning off the lights today in celebration of Earth Day tomorrow as part of the national Lights Out Canada initiative.

The Environmental Committee has been issuing challenges to staff and students in Rainbow Schools since the start of the school year.

Staff and students wore vintage clothing in support of Green Consumer Day, ate pulses and shared recipes in support of the International Year of the Pulses, went paperless in support of World Paper Free Day, composted organic waste, turned down the heat and wore a sweater, and conserved water on International World Water Day.
