uReport: Cresthaven PS goes on 6K walk to help save polar bears

$375 donated to World Wildlife Fund

North York Mirror

Cresthaven Public School students and staff went on a six-kilometre walk in their Leslie and Finch area community on Feb. 27 in support of International Polar Bear Day.

Students and staff wore white hats to symbolize the polar bears and carried signs urging passersby to help save the polar bears and reduce their energy use.

The students received many honks of support and friendly waves from passing motorists.

Throughout the month of February, the students learned about polar bears and the impact of climate change on their ability to survive.

The school’s Eco Club organized special movie days where students could come watch a polar bear-themed movie at lunch.

Students collected toonies, featuring this Canadian icon, to be donated to World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to help protect the polar bears.

A total of $375 was raised during the month of February.

“Thanks Cresthaven, for showing you care and doing so much to help the polar bears!” said Nancy Gillis, a teacher at Cresthaven Public School.
