Burnaby Mountain Students  –  Building Connections and Giving Back

—–March 5th, 2013—–

Cameron Centre Healthy Kids Preschool Fair:
Mountain students helped out again this year at the annual Preschool
Fair at Cameron Recreation Centre. Preschool age kids and their parents
come to this event to visit a health nurse, play at the indoor
playground, take part in activities and craftsand get information from
community agencies specializing in preschool services. Mountain students
helped to direct parents, hand out goodie bags and snacks, and run the
arts and crafts and activity stations.

Vancouver Food Bank
On January 30 a group of Mountain students spent the afternoon at the
Greater Vancouver Food Bank’s main warehouse, sorting food for
distribution to those in need. It was hard work, but a truly rewarding
experience.

Cameron Recreation Centre Breakfast with Santa

  • Two fantastic Mountain students volunteered at this year’s Breakfast with Santa at Cameron Rec Centre on December 8. They were busy helping with crafts, face painting and serving a pancake breakfast to all the kids who attended.  Afterwards one volunteer said that her hard work was worth it, just to get to see “Santa come through the doors! and all the children’s faces light up”
