Warriors of the Rainbow

By: Clandonald School

According to Cree legend, “Leaders will be those whose actions speak the loudest; the ones that have demonstrated wisdom and courage and have proven that they work for the benefit of all.” Adopting this philosophy, Clandonald School created Warriors of the Rainbow, a clan of environmental stewards dedicated to the preservation and beautification of the natural world. For the past 12 years, the Warriors of the Rainbow have established a recycling program and engaged in community cleanups. Recently, the group has increased their program to include gardening, composting, constructing bluebird houses and reusable tote bags, and have brought plants into each classroom to improve air quality.
