David Suzuki Secondary School received the Friends of the Credit Award of Distinction on March 21 at the Annual Friends of the Credit Conservation Awards and Dinner. This award, given by Credit Valley Conservation , honours the outstanding work of David Suzuki students and staff to improve the ecosystem, and the health and cleanliness of their local community.
To date, the school has planted over 200 native trees and shrubs on site. Students have also participated in many large-scale community cleanups, planted trees and removed invasive species from local parks in partnership with the City of Brampton, CVC, POWER and others.
