A sampling of 2016 winning projects

École Beauvalois

École Beauvalois in Val-Paradis won for its project to put in place student mediators to resolve conflict on the playground. At the beginning of the school year, third to sixth graders are trained in conflict resolution techniques to deal with minor issues. Mediators not only manage conflict but also lead younger students in games, prepare special events during activities and theme days, and are asked by teachers for help and support. In addition to feeling valued, mediators receive rewards and privileges throughout the school year for their good work.

The school received $800 to buy whistles for each student to be used when leading games, and vests bearing the school logo. The funds will also be used to make colour copies of training documents and laminate them so they can be reused the following year. The school will also organize an end-of-the-year activity to reward and congratulate the students who took part in the project.

École élémentaire catholique Saint-Joseph d'Orléans

École élémentaire catholique Saint-Joseph d'Orléans is one of 7 school in Ontario to receive a #DesjardinsFoundation Prize.

On the theme of Pensons passions, school first to sixth graders get together in small groups to work on subjects they feel passionate about.

Whether their interests lie in robotics, cooking, the environment, the community, construction or dance, students get together one hour a week to research and build projects based on their passions. Thanks to the $3,000 prize, 275 kids will be able to develop their passion through the Genius Hour project.

Polyvalente Montignac

For the last 3 years, secondary 4 and 5 students at Polyvalente Montignac can sign up for a Stress Management and Self Awareness activity implemented by teacher Chantal Lessard. Students can experiment with visualisation, meditation, mindfulness, writing and yoga. The activity helps students gain a better understanding of themselves, learn to recognize signs of stress and react to them more quickly.
