The "Marymount Action Group" otherwise known as "The MAG Team" has just started at Marymount Academy in N.D.G. It will be the umbrella group sponsoring a variety of activities on Democracy, Solidarity, Peace, and the Environment. Each activity will have a Spiritual Component. The first project took place September 13 as the team trimmed bushes, and planted hostas and hyacinths beside the steps leading to the front door of the school. On Sept. 27 there was a special ceremony at which time Marymount became the first English school in the province to be certified as a member of the Brundtland Green Establishment (BGE). Alain Pelissier, a Quebec representative of the BGE, attended the ceremony and handed out awards to the participating students. There are over 100 French schools already involved with the BGE, which has as its mandate to promote pacifism, democracy, solidarity and the environment.
