Grade 9’s Go “Full Steam Ahead” with Community Service Hours
This year’s group of grade 9 students at St. Charles College were offered some added incentive – do community service hours over the summer and be eligible for a $100 gift certificate for the mall. The winner is Reggie Bonhomme. Reggie worked at the Canadian Legion over the summer months and while he has garnered over 30 hours, he doesn’t plan to stop there.
Students must obtain 40 hours of community service during their high school career in order to graduate. Principal Patty Mardero says “the message has always been to start early and use the community service as a means of exploring career options.”
Principal Patty Mardero along with Guidance Department Head Silvia Faggioni presented Reggie with his prize this week.
