In the spring of 2010, each of our families of schools hosted an environmental summit on Earth Day. A variety of activities including video creations, "junk" art, nature walks and book making were featured.
Earth Day Summits engaged a wide range of Seven Oaks participants.

Maples Area GENGREEN Summit...Students, school staff and trustees from our Maples area schools met for an exciting morning of exploration around the theme of being environmentally responsible. GENGREEN pointed participants to the fact that we all have a role to play in taking care of our schools, community and planet. The focus was to go public with these ideas and the medium we chose was to begin creating public service video announcements. Summit leaders introduced us to examples of videos from across Canada, the United States and from our very own Elwick Community School where students and staff just completed an excellent series of short films and ads related to the environment. School teams began brainstorming and planning for their own video. We hope to offer a video editing workshop in June and combine each school's video into a DVD that can be featured at the next SEVEN OAKS UNITE TO CHANGE CONFERENCE, Oct. 21st, 2010.
