Throughout the 2009-10 school year, Kindergarten to Grade 6 students from Gerald McShane school in Montreal North engaged in a school-wide project meant to promote literacy, celebrate their talents as authors and promote a sense of pride and compassion towards others within the community.
The project required the students to produce written pieces in both English and French based on a theme of their choice. The pieces were then placed in a wooden photo box, decorated and painted by them in art class, and upon completion, were sent to the Montreal Children’s Hospital, the Shriner’s Hospital for Children, St. Justine’s Hospital, a Villa Belle Rive Nursing Home and L’Académie Louis Pasteur, a French school in the community.
