Environmental Initiatives at Our School
At Peter Lougheed, we believe that students and staff should contribute to taking care of our environment. Being a new school we have many features that work to help lower Peter Lougheed School's environmental footprint.
Automatic/motion sensor lights are installed in all classrooms and work spaces.
Waste Reduction Program
We also work with our CBE's Ecoteam, which is a group of dedicated staff who help schools lower their impact on the environment. At Peter Lougheed, in each learning space, we have three bins for students/staff to make environmentally conscious decisions when discarding materials. We have BLUE bins for Recyclable Materials (plastics, paper, etc.), YELLOW for refundables, GREEN for Organics and BLACK for waste. Our goal is for students to be stewards not only of our school and community, but to create a caring mindset for our planet.
At Peter Lougheed, we also have explore courses that focus on Environmental Studies. Students often head down to the Hugh A. Bennett pond, which is the large wetlands area just east of our school, to learn about these vital riparian ecosystems, but they also give back, by cleaning up the shores of our local wetlands right here in the community of Saddleridge!
