Each year on the first Thursday of February, Canadians are asked to turn down their heat and wear sweaters to raise awareness about climate change and energy conservation. Founded by WWF-Canada in 2010, more than a million Canadians have participated in National Sweater Day.
In an effort to combat climate change, Sudbury Catholic Schools participated in this initiative on February 6, 2020. Staff and students at Holy Cross School, St. David School, St. James School, St. Charles College, Marymount Academy, Bishop Alexander Carter C.S.S and the Catholic Education Centre brought their warmest sweaters as schools turned down the heat by 1.5 degrees celsius throughout the school day. Though the change in temperature was nominal; collectively, we as a Board made a statement regarding climate change and its impact on our world.
“National Sweater Day gave our staff and students an opportunity to reflect on how rising global temperatures are impacting the planet and how together we can help to reduce climate change by making small changes in our daily live,” said Joanne Bénard, Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. “By making a commitment to the planet on National Sweater Day, students and educators better understand the powerful impact that they can have.”

The end of 2019 was the very beginning of
this new initiative aimed at supporting our youth and bringing awareness and
knowledge around the indigenous culture. Robyn Lafortune is our new Indigenous
Support Worker and we are so very pleased to welcome her into our school
This room has been named the “Sacred Room”
and the hope is to create a safe place for students to work, talk, learn and
connect with one another. The students will have the opportunity to help design
the space and support with future mural projects within this space.
Moving forward students will be able to
participate in a variety of different activities and teachings that will be
facilitated in this space. Guest speakers will be invited to discuss their
experiences and provide students with sacred teachings. On days where there are
no planned activities this room becomes a safe space for students to drop in
throughout the day either to work or talk with Robyn.
We are happy and pleased to welcome all students at Bishop Alexander Carter into this room to learn and share together!
