Apple Crunch a Month at St. Raphael

Grade two student Katryna Chretien chows down on her red Gala apple at St. Raphael’s School.

February 24, 2011 - A crunch could be heard throughout the halls and classrooms at St. Raphael’s School this morning.  Almost four hundred students bit down on a red Gala apple simultaneously to celebrate the school’s first Apple Crunch a Month event.

The school is being recognized by the Healthy Schools Recognition Program.  It is a Ministry of Education initiative that awards schools going above the call of duty when it comes to the promotion of healthy living and eating. 

Students had been gearing up for the event with morning announcements that focused on the healthy benefits of eating the fruit. 

Grade Seven student Keenan Skilliter told the student body that “eating the apple will clean teeth, massage gums and nourish the brains.”

The school will continue to hold one Apple Crunch a Month from now until summer break.
