Students in École Gravelbourg School are now recycling. It’s a project they cherish, since it’s helping our planet to be cleaner and safer for all living beings. A group of students decided to push it a little farther and also created the We Act Green club.
Mrs. Fournier's literature class has explored how the New Year is celebrated in different countries. Their first stop was China. Grade 1/2 French immersion students made a dragon using a toilet paper roll for the body. They were really happy with the result!
