“Apple-icious” School Gets Provincial Healthy School Designation

Members of the school apple crew - David Browne, Kiersten Bebamikawe and Hailey McAuley proudly display the healthy schools certificate and banner from the Ministry of Education while eating their apples.

June 6, 2011 - St. Raphael School is being recognized by the provincial government for actively promoting a healthy environment.  The students have been eating apples together each month to bring awareness to the benefits of eating the cheap and healthy fruit.

The school has also been including nutrition facts and tips in its monthly newsletters to raise parent/guardian awareness.

The students have taken an active role in the washing and distribution of the apples each month.  The grade seven students also provide the students with apple related trivia to get them into the spirit before each big crunch.

Vicki McGuire, the principal of the school says “the students look forward to the apple crunch a month and many have been asking if the program will continue next school year.”

The Ministry of Education has provided the school with a pledge certificate and a healthy school banner to help celebrate the schools achievements.
