Shopping for a Good Cause
Students from Nor’wester View Public School made their lists and checked them twice as they visited Westfort Foods on Friday, December 15. The Nor’wester View Grade 3 students and the Students from the Grade 7/8 Global Citizenship Academy visited the Westfort grocery store to purchase food items for their school’s annual Christmas Cheer Fund donation with funds that they have raised.
“The Christmas Cheer Fund annual collection is a very big effort at our school and this activity is a good opportunity for the students to have some say into what we purchase and donate,” says Kristi Lees, Grade 7/8 Global Citizenship Academy Teacher at Nor’wester View Public School. “It is also a good learning opportunity as the students will have to make the healthy food shopping lists and learn how much food really costs.”
