The entire world of learning and education is grappling with the question of how to make the process for students more real, relevant, authentic, engaging, purposeful, etc. In my previous post I highlighted Mrs. Dieleman’s Food and Nutrition class who served up lunch for our student body. Talk about a ‘real’ experience.
Extending this topic a bit further, here are three other things going on around the school that extend the same theme:
1. Last week Wednesday evening, LDCSS engaged in our annual SCROOGE evening in support of the London Food Bank. This year we tried a few new things to help serve at some other causes in the London community, namely at the Sanctuary and at Mosaic Church. Below is a picture of some of our Gr. 9 students listening in while Andrew, a pastor at Mosaic, talks a bit about low income housing and the challenges associated with living in these circumstances. Overall, it was a good evening and the city of London was served well by the LDCSS community, which is the ultimate goal.
