Environmental Issues Discussed at St. Catherine of Siena
On September 22nd our community welcomed an organization known as "The Earth Rangers" back to our school. Students from kindergarten to grade 6 were treated to an abundance of information about a variety of species who need our help to survive. A bald eagle, a reptile and a peregrine falcon all made an appearance during the assembly. Our students were enthralled with these animals.
Our presenters from The Earth Rangers discussed the issues associated with these animals' habitat and our responsibility as stewards of the earth to look out for these creatures. Our school was also treated to a video message from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau encouraging our kids to be leaders today in supporting environmental issues such as caring for endangered species.
Our students were keen listeners and enthusiastic participants throughout the one hour assembly.
