Bolton Regional Councillor Good to Know

Congrats to Belfountain Public School!

Caledon’s 2014 Environmentalist of the Year Named

In recognition of its contribution to the stewardship of Caledon’s natural environment, the Caledon Environmental Advisory Committee (CEAC) has chosen Belfountain Public School as the Environmentalist of the Year for 2014.

The Belfountain Public School is an early adopter of Education for Sustainable Development, using sustainability as an integrating context for teaching and learning, decision-making, civic engagement, community partnerships and campus practices.

“Congratulations to Belfountain Public School for their work in Caledon,” said Mayor Marolyn Morrison. “The school provides exciting learning activities at all grade levels to enrich the standard curriculum. Its obvious commitment to Caledon and to the natural environment is most deserving of this Environmentalist of the Year recognition.”

Belfountain Public School will be presented with its award at the Town’s Volunteer and Citizen Achievement Awards ceremony on April 7, 2014 and inducted into the CEAC Stewardship Grove on the Trans-Canada Trail in Caledon East on June 25, 2014.

Additionally, Belfountain Public School is given the honour of directing a $500 Annual Environmentalism Recognition Award to its favourite Caledon-based environmental stewardship project.

CEAC established the “Environmentalist of the Year” award in 1997 to recognize individuals or organizations that have made an outstanding contribution to environmental stewardship in the Town of Caledon.
