Cultivating Citizenship (Elementary) – Deep Learning
As an educator at st. Michael’s School, I’ve seen the students truly embrace what it means to be a good citizen. In God’s eyes everyone deserves the same thing everyone is worth the same amount no one is worth more than anyone else. I’ve had the pleasure of listening to students enthusiastically share their stories of the things that they’ve done for the community of Fitzroy Harbour This culture of good citizenship and compassion that the students have created has resulted in them wanting to do something very special for Christmas this year When it is winter the socks get wrecked easy and it doesn’t really matter to us because we have so much socks and they’re very cheap because we can get them at the dollar store but to homeless people they’re like gold. After researching the various charities in Ottawa and collaborating they decided that the charity that resonated with them the most was Socks for the Homeless Now is when they are children they’re naive and innocent and they’re discovering things and I think that teaching them citizenship is vital to their growth. I don’t want to be a greedy person when I’m older and I think that they deserve a second chance. I can just see that they are going to be wonderful contributing members in our community in the future.
