C.C.V.S. Students Honour Local Paramedics

Posted On Wednesday April 07, 2021

C.C.V.S. students enrolled in Mrs. Mahon’s English 1L/2L class have spent several weeks working on a special project to show appreciation for local paramedics. 

During a classroom conversation in early February about the COVID-19 pandemic and the essential services provided by local frontline workers, students were motivated to share some well-deserved kindness. Together, the class of grade nine and ten face-to-face and synchronous students researched the duties and responsibilities of paramedics and applied their learning to create 110 unique care packages – one for each paramedic in the Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry region.

Each care package includes a student-made thank-you card and a hand-sewn reusable lunch bag filled with snacks, breakfast vouchers, a hand-painted ornament, and a variety of other gifts and goodies generously donated by caring community members and businesses.

Students agreed that it feels wonderful to be able to give something back to deserving frontline heroes.  Our local paramedics never hesitate to put others’ needs ahead of their own. They dedicate themselves to working long hours in high-stress situations and are willing to sacrifice time with their own loved ones to provide quality care for others. The C.C.V.S. Raiders are grateful for the steadfast commitment of local paramedics, especially throughout the entire COVID-19 pandemic.
