St. John School Honoured for Environmental Efforts

October 7, 2003 - Ray Bonin, M.P. Nickel Belt, unveils a special plaque at St. John Catholic School in Garson in recognition of the school’s participation in the “Adopt a Creek Program.” St. John is one of the first schools in the Sudbury area to take part in "Adopt-a-Creek," a new project organized by the Junction Creek Stewardship Committee. Last spring, Grade 5 and 6 classes at the school planted trees and cleaned up garbage along the shore of the creek as part of the program. Other classes are taking part in water quality monitoring, by studying the bugs living in the creek.

On hand for the presentation were; back row (L-R), Ray Bonin, MP Nickel Belt, Louisa Bianchin, School Principal, Jennifer Sheardown, Stream Assessment Assistant , Carrie Regenstreif, Junction Creek Stewardship Committee and Brenda Harrow, Ministry of Natural Resources along with the St. John Student Council.
