St. Patrick Catholic School family is proud to support the South Frontenac Food Bank. Through our spirit days, food drives and raffles tickets we have donated non perishable food and hygiene items as well as monetary donations.
Our milk bag project which is both a social justice and environmental project. Last year we collected over 10,000 bags and sent them on to Dufferin –Peel Catholic School Board where they were woven into mats for Ebola victims. The mats last for up to 20 years and repel insects and scorpions. This year we decided to make our own mats. We have 10 weaving frames, one for each classroom. Students helped build the frames and the screws were donated by Trousdale's Home Hardware in Sydenham. Grade 7/8 students have taken a lead role in starting the weaving process for classes and demonstrated the proper procedure to make mats. They are also responsible for completing the finished edge by braiding the ends.
