Eco Club Hosting High-Profile Speakers to Share Green Tips with MDHS Students

By Ben Hartshorn and Tasmia Jamil

You heard it—on this Thursday, November 22nd, the Eco Club is hosting special presentations in room 110—with some very special guests!

Eleanor Hayward, the 2018 Green Party MPP candidate for Milton, has agreed to come to MDHS to speak to the students of our Grade 9 Geography classes this week. She will be giving an inspiring presentation on Climate Change, what she has done to help the environment, and what we can do to help our school and community become an even better place to live in! She will be speaking to classes during Period 1 and 2.

Additionally, Oakville’s Heather Govender will be here after school this Thursday, November 22nd in Room 110.

She will come to MDHS and talk about how we can put in the effort to reduce waste and her methods of avoiding excess waste. In 2015, Heather amassed a shocking 1.1 kg of waste compared to the average household waste of 151 kg per person.

It will be an eye-opening experience and all are welcome to join other Eco Club members in an informal discussion. Snacks are provided!

You can also check out Heather’s blog at to see her journey and eco-friendly tips.

If you would like to meet Heather Govender, come join the Eco Club this Thursday after school and be sure to give these presenters a very warm welcome!
