Students from Ecole Our Lady of the Rosary School in Miss Nicole Eleniak’s Grade 1 class created blessing bags as part of their Social Justice project during the Advent Season of Giving. Students filled bags with items such as mittens, toques, socks, hygiene products, a bottle of water and a snack which will be placed in the hands of those in need this holiday season. The spirit of giving to those in need is a meaningful part of the students’ learning at Ecole Our Lady of the Rosary School, according to Eleniak. “For it is in giving that we receive,” St. Francis of Assissi.
