This month Ms. Ziefflie's Grade 1-2 class has been learning about the importance of water for all living things. They have collaborated with our Be the Change club to raise money for the Emerald Sea Protection Society.

The Emerald Sea Protection Society searches for and removes "ghost nets", which are abandoned fishing nets that contribute towards pollution and harm sea life.
