BERMUDA POLICE SERVICE
A member of the Bermuda Police Service for 14 years. I am passionate about protecting and serving my country and it's people.
A staunch advocate for safe and appropriate technology use, I have volunteered with the Cybertips Programme for the last three years. My goal is to educate Bermuda's residents on the not only the potential dangers of using the internet and technologies inappropriately but all the ensuring they know the law and punishments related to online offenses.
There is a growing body of knowledge that can help us understand the decision-making process, and in turn, learn to make better decisions.

Square Foot Garden
Students will discover the basic needs of plants, design a square foot garden by using a data chart and partitioning squares to create a planting template, and plant a garden from seeds and seedlings. A sustainable way of living is to grow your own food supply.
*School must provide an allocated space for the square foot garden*
What better way to learn about sustainability than to compost! Composting is a biological process in which tiny organisms (microbes) convert organic materials such as food scraps, leaves, grass clippings, and paper) into nutrient- rich, soil-like products. These products can then be bagged and sold as a school fundraiser or used to support your schools garden.
Learning about aquaponics enforces practical uses of chemistry, mathematics, physics, economics and engineering. The monitoring and care of an aquaponic system by students helps instill a sense of responsibility, inspires creativity and creates excitement in the learning environment.
Note: Each school is responsible for providing the space for each sustainable project. Schools should select teams of students to work on the projects over the course of two afternoons. The Economic Development Department will work to coordinate with expert volunteers to assist the schools.
