Ram Students Raise Funds for Cancer By Transforming Their Class Into A Bistro Café!
Earlier this week, Mme Winn and her grade 2/3 French Immersion Class at St. Charles elementary school in Chelmsford transformed their classroom into a Bistro café for a day to raise funds for cancer!
The ambiance, the desserts, the attire, and the decorations made it an authentic experience for the other French Immersion classes who came in as customers.
In this activity, students could speak in French in real-life situations and use their money calculation skills to find out the totals of each order. This made for an enjoyable, hands-on learning activity that each student valued. What a great way to practice speaking French and improve their numeracy skills!
At the end of the day, all proceeds from the café were donated to the Northern Ontario Families of Children with cancer, which in total fundraised 471,50 dollars.
By providing unique learning activities, students can have fun and enhance their knowledge of important subjects, allowing them to reach their full potential in a positive, nurturing environment. Please browse our photo gallery below to see this activity in action!
