Eco9 is a cross curricular Grade 9 program run out of E.S. Laird Middle School. Students spend a lot of time learning outside the classroom participating in trips, tours and outdoors activities
This program builds independence, and collaborative learning, as the class is divided into leadership groups with varying responsibilities. For example, our Caretakers look after the Hydroponics room, where we grow our own plants, fruits and vegetables. As a class, we plan for land based education whenever possible. We are frequently away from school on trips that are educational, fun and include curricular outcomes.
