Spring Creek School Trip to the Outdoor School
In June 2012, the grade 6 and 7 students of Spring Creek Community School took a trip to the Sea to Sky Outdoor School for Sustainability Education on Gambier Island.
The Community Foundation of Whistler is proud to have supported this trip with a grant of $9000 from the Environmental Legacy Fund.
82 students went on the trip and learned about environmental sustainability. The learning activities were geared towards raising students' awareness of their role in global issues and their impact on the environment. The students learned about ecology, ethics, the "earth community", waste reduction, food issues, and how to work collaboratively.
