St. Anne Students Use Technology To "Envision" More Than Sugarplums
St. Anne Intermediate student Hunter Sabzali helps his younger sister Jaida who is in Grade 3. With the MacBook, he assists her in using technological knowledge to type out her letter to Santa.

December 13, 2011 - Christmas is a time for sharing and giving. That was very evident when Mrs. Belanger's Grade 7 English students at St. Anne school in Hanmer shared their laptops and their time with the Grade 3 English students in Mme. Lafrance's class. In keeping with the holiday spirit, the Grade 7 students within the Sudbury Catholic Board helped their new friends in Grade 3 type out their letter to Santa Claus. The younger children were excited about their thoughts of what they should ask for. The Grade 7 students were not only able to assist in the typing out of the wishes of the Grade 3 children, but while both groups were typing, the Intermediate students were also showing the primary students some of the skills that were needed to use the laptops. Both groups of students really enjoyed working together. Jaida Sabzali worked with her older brother Hunter on her letter. She said, "It was fun to work with my big brother. It was fun using Hunter's computer and I learned a lot." Hunter was quoted as saying, "It was fun to help out my little sister. I helped her type out her letter to Santa and I was impressed to watch her type." The Grade 3 students will be mailing their printed letters to Santa Claus. They will anxiously be awaiting for their return letters from the North Pole.

•  After they thanked the parent for the compliment, they explained that the students are using educational games throughout the day. Students start with thirty minutes of activity time. Then 45 minutes of taekwondo, then snack then back to activity until the end of the day at 12:30. The activities are so much fun the students don't even realize they are learning the entire day.
