Students learned how they could care for themselves, others and the environment.  The students learned the importance of showing respect and living as Jesus taught them to.  The school had various guest speakers throughout the week starting with a presentation by Kingston City Police Constable Gauthier on cyber bullying and caring about your online presences. The KFL&A Public Health did a presentation about healthy eating and physical activity. The staff and students presented House Based Housing with a financial support and toiletries for Lily's Place, a shelter for families in Kingston.

It was a wonderful week of learning.
