Inquiry in the Classroom

The grade 9 Science class has been learning about astronomy, space exploration, and how the study of the skies impacts our lives on planet earth. What started with a lot of questions about what we know about the universe and how we found that out has led to many opportunities for exploration. Each student is choosing specific concepts to explore, such as the International Space Station, dark matter, and potentially habitable planets, and they will be researching to find answers… Read More

Clothesline Donation Box Comes to Landmark

In North America approximately 68 pounds of clothing is thrown out per household per year. Not only is this causing the landfills to keep growing but there are many people and their families who could benefit from this clothing. This information lead a group of grade 9 students from Landmark Collegiate to take action for a project in which they were to explore a way to make their community a better place.

Through a student-initiated inquiry, Sydnie Janz, Haylee Janz, and Celina Lackmann realized that Landmark currently had no place to recycle or donate used clothing, so they contacted several organizations to see what they could to do help. After a lot of research, collaboration, and careful planning, the Canadian Diabetes Association accepted their proposal and agreed to deliver a Clothesline donation box to the school.  The clothing that is donated will be sold to Value Village and the profits from that clothing will go directly to the Canadian Diabetes Association. This money funds research to provide better medical treatments and to provide community support for those affected by diabetes.

The widely recognized bright red bin was delivered on Thursday, February 16th and conveniently placed at the main entrance of Landmark Collegiate. Landmark residents can now drop off gently used clothing anytime they like. By donating instead of adding to the landfill, people can feel good about being sustainable, providing quality clothing at an affordable price, and by helping to support those affected by diabetes.
