Each year around the holiday season, schools from all across Near North District School Board (NNDSB) participate in the act of giving. This year is no exception. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, students have collected donations in a safe manner.
NNDSB schools have collected food, clothing, and monetary donations to help their communities. Students from South River Public School collected food donations during their week-long campaign, which ran from December 7-11 for the local Good Happenings Food Bank.
In addition to these kind acts, there is a multi-learning connection. Character building is one example. This builds on the already outstanding traits that students have, but service-sacrificing ones own desires and time or energy to benefit others. This initiative also has a math connection. While the donations came in, students created and updated a graph while learning data management.
Congratulations and thank you of your continued success in helping your communities.
