PVNC schools to #TurnDownTheHeat for National Sweater Day on Feb. 7

Sixteen Catholic schools in our Board will be turning down the temperatures while students and staff bundle up in cozy sweaters on Feb. 7, 2019 as PVNC takes part in National Sweater Day.

Since 2010, more than a million Canadians have shown their support for limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius by turning down their thermostats by the same amount (or more) and wearing their favourite sweaters to stay warm.

National Sweater Day is an opportunity to raise awareness about climate change and energy conservation, and show how together – classroom by classroom, school by school – we can all be a part of the solution.

Educators can make an impact beyond National Sweater Day by asking students to reflect on their personal carbon footprint and make personal commitments in their own lives to help keep climate change in check.

Schools can share in the event by using the hashtags #SweaterDay #TurnDownTheHeat & #PVNCleads.
