September 20th marks the beginning of a week-long #ClimateChange campaign. It’s #GlobalClimateStrike day and even though students were unable to leave school, they still joined people around the world to protest the lack of action by our political leaders regarding climate change. Students used their break time to demonstrate within the secondary school grounds.
