Suzuki Planet: January 2015
Be The Change
Mission, Vision, Values
Our Motto is "Be the Change".
Our Vision for David Suzuki Secondary School is to develop a collaborative community of individuals who are continually evolving to become environmental stewards capable of taking action to better the world.
Our Mission as a school community is to create a safe learning environment where all students learn to respect each other, their community and the planet. We do this by providing diverse learning opportunities that involve students, staff, parents and the community so that students can become productive lifelong learners.
Our Values include: Honesty, Responsibility, Respect, Empathy.
Suzuki students value the health of their environment.
Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Technology and core values of Caring and Responsibility all come together in many of our environmental projects. Have a peek at some of the highlights of a semester of environmental responsibility:
Eco Values in Business: These students have a plan to help Ten Tree expand internationally to increase revenues and the benefits to society.
Studying biodiversity leads to action at Suzuki. We partnered with the City for our new butterfly garden.

Leading the way
Do you think of Suzuki as a model school? CWF does. At the beginning of the semester, they published a four page article in their national magazine, WILD, designed to inspire classes from other schools across Canada to follow the David Suzuki SS example!
