EcoSchools and Banting Green

Banting Green

If you have met Janet, then you know she is passionate about the environment, healthy eating, and science. Take a look at her science blog http://bantinggreen.blogspot.ca - it showcases Banting's "eco-achievements", and some students' science contributions. Pick up a copy of Banting Green at school too, which is our school's healthy eating & science-themed newsletter.

Recycling
Banting recycles every Friday. With Janet's guidance, students volunteer to help a lot of recyclable material avoid landfills. This small act contributes to our outstanding environmental stewardship seen at Banting. Read more about it in our EcoSchools section below.


EcoSchools

Banting has been awarded the Platinum Level from EcoSchools. This is a direct result of Janet's hard work and all of our involvement/investment in the environmental initiatives at Banting!  We are one of two schools in the OCDSB who have received Platinum status in the 2017/2018 school year!


Platinum certification allows high-achieving schools to deepen their existing program through rich opportunities that engage students in environmental learning and practice.

Eligibility Requirements
In order to be eligible for Platinum certification schools must have:
1) Certified Gold or Platinum in the year previous
2) Certified for at least five years with no more than a one-year gap
3) Certified Gold for at least three of the past six years


Platinum



Frederick Banting is a proud member of Ontario EcoSchools. We are a certified school at PLATINUM status, which takes a lot of work to obtain and maintain! Not only have we achieved platinum status, but we have earned gold status over the last three consecutive school years!
