With many students graduating from the SIS program this year and moving on to use their learned skills out in the community, we wanted to put together a project that encompassed the essence of the SIS program. With the competencies of the program heavily weighted in promoting a healthy, active lifestyle we thought what better than to create a green space at the back of the center for all the students to enjoy. It would be a spot where all the students at CDC Vimont could go to clear their mind, reflect and enjoy the outdoors. Sometimes students need a place to escape the hustle and bustle of school pressures, the green space would bring a tranquil environment to the urban landscape of the school.
With a little love and TLC the SIS students will clean up the back area of the school, paint the planters and plant some beautiful flowers as well as do some much needed landscaping. We will also be building a new picnic bench to have as much space as possible for students.
This project touches directly on many of the competencies of the SIS program and we look forward to putting our work skills into action to bring some beauty to CDC Vimont!
