“Making Magee a greener place by leading as environmental stewards” -this is the mission of the Magee Environment Club (MEC). Within two years, MEC has blossomed from a small recycling group to a motivated community of more than 50 people who are involved in the recycling system, the new school garden, tap water promotion, and the classroom compost system. Run by a council of 25 members and 4 sponsor teachers, the club aims to foster leadership and confidence in environmental leaders.
