Global Citizens do a “green” test on EC Cape Town

Students from the Global Citizenship Class and the Intermediate 4 Class of EC Cape Town had to do a “green” test on EC Cape Town. They surveyed our eco-friendliness and our care for the environment. They had to look at our recycling, reducing and re-using capabilities. They also had to ask some “green” questions to our staff and afterwards they had to give EC Cape Town a “green” score. They suggested a score of 70%!

Suggestions for improving our environmental awareness were set as homework.
