Green Certifications

Green TCS

Ontario EcoSchools

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. In 2018 and in 2019, we received platinum level certification again.
