Mr. Speaker, early in the year, École de la Chantignole, in Bromont, embarked upon a wonderful environmental impact reduction initiative.
January 10 saw the official launch of the “One, two, three, compost!” project that all classes are taking part in.
I would like to congratulate the students and teachers who distinguished themselves through the concrete actions they have taken to reduce waste by composting.
Set in motion by the teachers, the project is the result of a collaboration between the Brome-Missisquoi RCM, the City of Bromont, the school board and the school.
A green committee was created in order the get the students involved. These young people are true role models in the field of environmental protection, and this initiative will prepare them for taking on their role as responsible citizens.
In closing, I would like to congratulate the teachers and students of the green committee of École de la Chantignole in Bromont.
