LOVE OF READING

Rebuilding three libraries at the three schools that make up the tri-school CLC in Gaspe-Perce, was a labour of love.

When you walk through the doors of ASJ Memorial in Thetford Mines, you notice a soft blue light peeking out from around the corner.

ALICE IN WONDERLAND LITERACY EVENT

When offering services and activities to families, CLC schools will often conduct a needs assessment - a method of gathering data from the school community, to better tailor the interventions, partnerships, and programs that the school, and the community, can offer.

The “Brigades Culinaires” was a major triumph for the school and the students involved.  IT was a logistical challenge to get the Brigades underway, vis a vis the equipment needed, but most importantly, finding the right chef to head up the program.

This was a partnership lead by our Physical Education Teacher, Felix Lavergne. Just behind LTHS there are hiking trails, maintained by a local organization called “le club de trois raquettes”.

Peer Advisors. Two words that define leadership and self-discovery.

A new approach was needed. Joliette High School veered off the beaten path to create The Peer Advisors.
