Since 2012, TCS has been certifying with the Ontario EcoSchools program as a way to increase our environmental education and actions. Led by TEAC, the Sustainability Committee and many individuals, we annually complete environmentally-themed tasks in the areas of: teamwork and leadership, energy conservation, waste management, school ground greening, curriculum and environmental stewardship. Over the first five years, TCS certified at the silver level twice, moving up to the gold level for the next three years. In 2017, we received our first platinum level certification showing a comprehensive, dedicated approach to sustainability. Since that date, we have continued to receive platinum level certification annually.
