Schools rewarded for green initiatives

Ecole Mill Bay’s Roots & Shoots Club has won $1,000 from the B.C. Green Games for its environmental projects this school year.

The club’s students have been educating their school about issues such as idling, eating locally grown food, and protecting native species of animals, such as the barred owl.

Students also made their own fair trade organic chocolates and raised money to build a well in Zambia. Another Mill Bay school, Brentwood College, also won a Green Game award in the secondary school level.
