World Environment Day

We celebrated World Environment Day 
with lessons about how students can conserve water and protect our world!! 

Thanks to the wonderful work of SURGE FOR WATER for all their great humanitarian, life-saving work around the world.

Today Grade 3 partook in the Surge Water Workshop to mark World Environmental Day. Surge brings life-sustaining water and sanitation solutions to those in need and raises awareness of the global water crisis. Our students learned about the difficulties facing those in developing countries when it comes to water and all pledged to do their utmost to ensure that we all use water responsibly. If you want to find out how you too can save water just ask Grade 3 students. We are happy to help!

Thanks to 
for helping out and to all the volunteers for making the day possible!

RWA Wins Again!

Congratulations, RWA!  You are awesome! 

EVERYONE did their part! Keep it up.

Thank you to the CLEAN ENERGY BUSINESS COUNCIL for sponsoring a competition (link to our announcement) between schools to REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT during the months of April and May 2016!

Once again... RWA prevailed and won a very cool solar panel bank and battery system! Now we can be even greener! Here are some energy use statistics from our school and information on how we are working to have a small carbon footprint here at RWA!   LINK

Our facilities team does a great job reducing energy consumption... but here are some things YOU CAN DO!

  • Keep the A/C at 24 degrees.
  • Shut doors when the A/C is on.
  • Use natural light when you can.
  • Turn off the lights when they aren't needed.
  • Turn off computers, projectors, and machines.

The CEBC has a great school support program, sponsoring many competitions and school enrichment programs. They are a great partner for RWA in our quest to become Greener and Greener and Greener!

Here is a video made by the eteam as part of the competition:
