Students at Paul Penna Downtown Jewish Day School in Toronto have created a beautiful school year calendar highlighting all the changes their school made in order to become an EcoSchool.
The Green Team chose twelve environmental issues that they wanted to focus on and created artwork with their families to share their message. They worked with plasticene which was then reused in classrooms.
The calendars are used in each classroom, helping students take action such as conserving energy, walking and riding to school, packing waste-free lunches etc. Specific details of the project were announced through the school's weekly newsletter and students are engaged in monthly discussions focusing on the theme for the month.
For Paul Penna, the EcoTeam is another branch of their framework of Tikkun Olam which is a Hebrew phrase that means "repairing the world".
