Courvilloise High School Students Visit the Elderly

About thirty students from Courvilloise high school in the International education program took advantage of their two free afternoons before the holidays to visit elderly people. In a lively atmosphere animated with games and songs, they created links between generations that they are not ready to forget.

Accompanied by the initiators of the project, Genevieve Audet and other project members, Pierre Belanger, and secondary two students, first went the Saint-Augustin long-term care Hospital, which is near their school. There they met many sick people to which they had sent personalized letters to let them know how they wanted to celebrate the Christmas holidays.

This correspondence was planned since autumn in the French class and counted as volunteer work for the community. The students animated a bingo, distributed snacks and wish cards, discussed with the elderly, sang Christmas carols, and gave hand-made presents such as crowns.

This was a wonderful experience for the students and elderly people in the hospital and home. It was great to see the links develop between the two generations and watch a friendship be created throughout the day.
