Grade 5 student completes Red Cross food drive

For her PYP Exhibition project, 5th grade student Jyotika studied ‘healthy lifestyles’. After a very engaging Exhibition where she shared a lot of interesting information, she was asked to contribute to Relay Recess and work alongside nurse Caroline to talk about food choices with younger students.

With help from her mentor, Mrs. Jo Taylor, Jyotika contacted the Red Cross which suggested ways of supporting people who are not always able eat healthy. Jyotika initiated a food drive. Her collection of non-perishable, healthy food was collected by the Red Cross this week. The Red Cross explained to Jyotika how they will distribute the food in our local community. Well done, Jyotika!
