Growing Together to Support Richelieu Valley Families
Students from cycle 3 at Cedar Street received a visit from Jean-Philippe from La Shop Agricole who offered them a training session on how to nurture plants in an urban context. They made a mix of compost and soil and installed an automated irrigation system to ensure that plants growing on the school's green wall would be watered on weekends and over the summer holiday. Our cycle 1 students have planted herbs in mini-green houses and will transplant them outside on the green wall in May. Volunteers from Le Grain de sel will pick up the herbs during the summer months to offer them to families in need in the valley. Our herbs in combination with the vegetables that will be grown in the Mountainview garden will offer families of the valley an opportunity to eat balanced meals. Congrats to our students for planting the seeds that will nurture the Valley!

Juice Boost Opens at Heritage!

Students from Mrs. Cawley's class at HRHS have opened their own juicing stand. What started out as a class discussion during a nutrition unit, quickly turned into a weekly, student-run business that offers fresh, organic fruit and vegetable juices to students and staff at a low price. The question they asked themselves was, how can we improve health in our school? With help from a member of PPO, the project received a grant from Programme Metro Croque Santé and a donation of equipment from IKEA. The students researched about vitamins and minerals, looked up juice recipes, conducted taste tests, and then converted a counter into a juicing stand. They are now making delicious juices once a week, dealing with customers and taking care of the accounting for their business!
