Students and staff demonstrated their commitment to the environment today by participating in Earth Hour.
The Ministry of Education and World Wildlife Fund partnered to encourage Ontario-wide participation. Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.
At schools and administrative offices, non-emergency lights were turned off for one hour on Friday, March 26, 2010.
This year Earth Hour will be celebrated internationally on Saturday, March 27 from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. It is expected that millions of people around the world will switch lights off.
