National Sweater Day is February 2, 2017National Sweater Day is a fun way to learn about the importance of saving energy and to inspire you to use less heat all winter. Heating accounts for 80% of residential energy use in Canada and is a significant source of emissions. If all Canadians lowered their thermostats by just 2 degrees Celsius this winter, it would reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 4 megatons – that’s equivalent to shutting down a 600 mega watt coal-fired power station or taking nearly 700,000 cars off the road!
Since 2010, over a million Canadians have participated in National Sweater Day at their schools, workplaces and homes.
With a small twist in the event, Sacred Heart Cardinals wore their UGLY sweaters to school on Friday. A fun contest to see who could wear the UGLIEST SWEATER brought out some wonderful school spirit. Please see our winners from the Primary, Junior and Senior divisions. Nice work Cardinals!
