Congratulations to the grade 5/6 class at Ecole Providence School who won HFCRD’s ADVENTure Contest! The school earned 176 likes on their entries on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram combined. As the rules stated at the beginning of the contest, the enrolment of the school was factored in when selecting a winner. To promote the Advent season, the grade 5/6 class shared the message “Do not be afraid for God is always with you” with their community by dropping off envelopes at homes throughout the McLennan community. The grade 5/6 class will receive a pizza party for their class, and $100 to donate to the charity of their choice. The class has chosen to donate the $100 to the Providence Breakfast Program which ensures that their own community will benefit from the donation.
“Since Providence is the smallest school in the HFCRD, the school found very creative ways to share their message with their community. They reached out to parents, the parish and all community members,” said Superintendent Betty Turpin. “A special congratulations to Mr. MacLeod’s grade 7 class at Glenmary School who did so well in the contest that we have decided to give them a pizza party as well for getting the most likes.”
HFCRD sends congratulations to all schools for their wonderful entries that shared the beautiful messages of the Advent season.
