On June 2, 2008, history was made when Bruce Peninsula District School and St. Edmunds Public School became the first schools in Ontario to receive the ASPnet (Associate School Project Network) UNESCO designation. This designation came as a result of years of effort by students, school staff, parents and community members who have worked together to reach a common goal.

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) focuses on 4 pillars: world concerns, human rights, intercultural learning and environmental concerns.  These pillars are the foundation for creating relevance and cross curricular learning opportunities.

Each year at our graduation ceremonies in June, a grade 8 and a grade 12 student will be presented with the UNESCO Global Citizenship Award. This award recognizes global citizenship as outlined by the four guiding principles of UNESCO, and is sponsored by the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association.  As an ASPnet UNESCO school within the biosphere, we value the contributions of our students to making the world a better place.
