SAC ENVIRONMENTAL CREED

We believe that all Andreans should cultivate ecological citizenship, and thereby inspire positive environmental change for sustainable living within our school community and beyond.
 
RATIONALE

Since 2002, SAC's student committee - the St. Andrew's Green Environmentalists (SAGE) - has acted as a hub for further greening the School. We want to build on that foundation and demonstrate leadership in terms of environmental sustainability in all walks of school life. Our goal is that everyone in the School community become one of St. Andrew’s Green Environmentalists, in spirit and by modeling a campus-wide ethic of environmental citizenship. As a community, we understand the environmental impact of the decisions the School makes, and we are acting locally to make the campus as sustainable as possible.

We are working to instill an environmental ethic in all members of our school community and will seek to apply that ethic when making decisions that affect the School. We believe our school's organizational behaviour and attitudes must reflect the commitments made in our Environmental Plan. In other words, we must walk our talk.

By doing so, we aim to inspire our students to demonstrate leadership in terms of ecological citizenship, and hope they graduate to become agents of change in our society’s transition to a sustainable future.
