BES Environmental Stewardship to Take Centre Stage

Dive into Earth Week, April 22 – 26 with the Nature Explorers Program at BES, where the spirit of environmental stewardship takes center stage. Under the guidance of Lynx, the program's dedicated facilitator, students will delve into a week of enriching activities, starting with Earth Day-inspired chalk art that paints the school in hues of environmental consciousness. The heart of the week is the Native Species Garden, a living classroom at the school's forefront, where students from Gr. 1-6 engage hands-on in nurturing 16 native and pollinator-friendly plant species. This initiative not only beautifies the school grounds but also serves as a vital educational tool, enhancing science curriculum connections and fostering a deep-rooted appreciation for nature. On Earth Day, April 22, the entire school will unite in a shared moment as Lynx presents a heartfelt slideshow video, echoing a message of gratitude for nature's bounty. This program, a testament to the school's commitment to environmental education, continues to flourish, thanks to the generous support of the Pauw Foundation, drawing admiration from the school and wider Banff community alike. For a glimpse into this green journey or more information, reach out to the BES Team.
