LHCS’s theme is to love your neighbour, so 5B decided, through the House of Friendship, to grow and donate seedlings. The House of Friendship helps new Canadians through local community centres. These centres have community gardens that help new immigrants have fresh vegetables. 5B grew cucumbers, onions and zucchinis that we will deliver to the Chandler-Mowat Community Centre.

Saturday, May 5th a small army of parents and students participated in the LHCS Spring Clean-up. Inside the school, microwaves were scrubbed, paint touched up, shelves dusted and scuff marks erased. Outside the school, sand was spread for the long jump pit, the parking lot and sidewalks were blown clean and the playground was made safer by loosening the mulch. Our school became a little tidier and the property committee had help with a few unfinished jobs around the school; but what may have been more significant was the sense of community and common purpose.
