After a successful showing at this past weekend’s Impromptu Tournament, three members of the Sacred Heart community were honoured with awards for their outstanding contributions to Nova Scotia student debating.
The Grade 1 classes joined with Vancouver Aquarium and World Wildlife Federation yesterday to participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. They took the city bus to Point Pleasant Park and cleaned the first two sections of Black Rock Beach. Together, they collected 194 pieces of trash, including bottle caps, food wrappers, plastic bags, plywood, lobster claw rings, foam packaging, and one very wet t-shirt. Motivated by their study of orcas, they learned about the importance of healthy oceans and how people can help and harm animals that live in them. This is an excellent example of Goal 3 - social awareness that impels to action. Well done, Grade 1!
