Colchester North PS Earns Hospice Award

​​​​Students, Keaton Seal and Alexa Soucie receive award.jpgStudents from Colchester North Public School have received the Jan Dennis Youth Award from the Hospice of Windsor and Essex County. β€‹The honour is presented to an individual or group, under 25 years of age who has volunteered their time in any capacity on behalf of Hospice.

Students posing with items collected for donation.jpgDuring the 2018-19 school year CNPS leadership students led a drive at the school to collect practical and essential items for Hospice that they would normally have to purchase for themselves: non-slip socks, soap, unscented wipes, toothbrushes, Ensure, Boost, dental floss, apple juice, Jello and puddings. 

The purpose of the initiative was for students to earn a better understanding of what Hospice does and the service they they provide, rather than just making a financial contribution.​
