Community Mentorship in the School
We have had a number of community members join us in the school this year to provide expertise to students as they work on a variety of projects. Recently grade 9 students were able to work with our local developer, Brookfield Residential as well as Epcor, to develop a model built-to-scale community called The Shores at Shark Lake, complete with lighted walking paths.
Grade 4 students, working on their Waste Warrior project, teamed up with local realtor, Rhonda Navratil on the Take Pride Summerside event. Students helped out during the day, collecting recyclables and donations for Goodwill.
Grade 2 students met with Craig Beaton from Lake Summerside when developing a plan to design and build boats to meet a variety of criteria.
The mentorship provided by our community has enriched not only the learning experience for our students but allowed them to appreciate a variety of career pathways that they may not have been exposed to before. Thank you community mentors!
