This was a round table discussion with several members of our school’s community about the importance of protecting the environment and being mindful of environmental issues. We were able to cover several topics during the panel, and get several perspectives on important issues. Overall, I think this was a good chance for the members of our school to develop a deeper appreciation of the environment, and a better understanding of the values of our school.
