“Our mandate is to support projects that beautify our city and enhance civic pride,” said Councillor Rebecca Johnson, Clean, Green and Beautiful Committee Chair. “Through the leadership of the educators and hard work of the students, they have been able to use these grants to make a real difference in their school environment. We are thrilled with all they have been able to accomplish.”

  • Hammarskjold High School
  • St. Ignatius High School
  • Westgate Collegiate & Vocational Institute
  • Superior Collegiate & Vocational Institute
  • École secondaire catholique de la Vérendrye
