Stu­dents learn plea­sure of giv­ing

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The sixth grade class of teach­ers Is­abelle Ar­guin and Manon Drouin, at Jardin-des Fron­tieres school, have a lot to be proud of: they or­ga­nized a huge col­lec­tion of canned goods for the CAB RH Rediker’s Christ­mas Bas­ket pro­gram. Turn­ing it into a con­test of who could col­lect the most num­ber of non-per­ish­able food items, be­tween the boys and the girls in the class, made the whole ex­er­cise more fun and very suc­cess­ful. The girls won, col­lect­ing a to­tal of 192 items, while the boys col­lected an equally im­pres­sive 157 items. Go­ing a step fur­ther, the class also bought about thirty gifts for less for­tu­nate chil­dren in the com­mu­nity, and wrapped them.
