Dunbarton High School Is the Greenest School on Earth

“It is a great gift for us to be in this community and have the ability to provide students with so many fantastic opportunities related to sustainability,” said David Gordon, instructor at Dunbarton High School. “In Pickering we receive nothing but support for our sustainability initiatives from the board, Pickering City, local businesses, parents, universities and NGO’s. They all provide our students with opportunities to deepen their understanding of sustainable practices and with the chance to take action to make Pickering and Dunbarton High School demonstrably more sustainable. This is what the world needs to adapt to a changing future, young people prepared to take action in a supportive community.”
