Students from Montague Public School rewarded four local charities in May, after raising more than $4,000 through their core French Real-World Learning project, ‘Café Days.

Three intermediate classes teamed up to create a French Café, where they could practice and increase their French language skills, all while raising money for charity.

The students brainstormed food and drink options that would be appealing to their customers - aka elementary students - and discussed price points that would be affordable for families.

Proposal letters for help were submitted to community partners, and they pitched their idea to the Real-World Learning Team. From there, students built a “café kiosk” with help from J.A. Hannah & Son Electric of North Gower and created French posters and menus to share within the school and send home with students, printed by Coba Studios in Merrickville.

Students created and practiced coffee shop dialogues and reviewed number amounts in French, chose the Café name along with a logo, and voted on local organizations to donate their proceeds to. Three Café days were held in April (one for each class) where students rotated through different tasks: tech crew, baristas, kitchen staff and French support personnel. Violets on Main Village Bakery in Merrickville supplied baked goods for them to serve.

In all, the team raised a total of $4050 for their efforts, donating it to the following organizations:

  • $1,300 to the Champion 4 Kids Foundation (C4K)
  • $1,300 to the Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS)
  • $1,300 to the Canadian Cancer Society
  • $150 to the Merrickville Food Cupboard

“I am immensely proud of these students for their incredible dedication and hard work on this Real-World Learning project,” said Montague French teacher Carly Mossip-Cameron, who supervised the project.

“Not only did they gain invaluable skills and experiences, but they also managed to make a meaningful difference in our community, which is truly inspiring,” Mossip-Cameron added. “They have proven with passion and hard work; they can make the world a better place.”
