Collegiate School's CENIC
Students Leading a School to Support a More Sustainable Future
Student April 16, 2008


Collegiate School's CENIC club has three areas of interest: reducing the school’s environmental footprint, spreading awareness of environmental problems and solutions, and taking part in the wider, global environmental movement.

James, the president, and Harrison, a key member of the CENIC joing us to discuss the club, it's founding and growth at Collegiate School.

If you're interested in learning more about CENIC, please contact James and Harrison through their web site contact form.
