 Grade 9 students from Trinity College School are brainstorming ideas for a very special service learning initiative to help people here in our local community.

On Tuesday, January 31st, the Grade 9 students met with Kim Vojnov, director of service learning at TCS, and Karen Brierley, the School’s Grade 9 coordinator. They were introduced to the programme which will see each house within the School come up with one activity between now and the end of the school year to raise awareness, funds and/or food donations to support the Cobourg Fare Share food bank.

Mrs. Vojnov and Ms. Brierley spoke about the purpose of this activity and about the School’s service learning goals in general, which are designed to help students learn the importance of taking action and feeling empowered to make a difference in the world. All of this is part of the School’s mission of “developing habits of the heart and mind for a life of purpose and service.”

Following the briefing session, the students broke off into their house groups to talk about possible activities, coming up with great ideas from paint ball to non-uniform days.

Over the next few weeks, Mrs. Vojnov and Ms. Brierley will meet with each house to make a final decision on which activities will be undertaken and when they will occur. We hope everyone will be as excited as our Grade 9 students are to support such a worthy cause!
