This past winter, St. Peter’s Hospital and Adelaide Hoodless Public School joined together for the third annual Connecting Generations program. In January, Grade 7 and 8 students from the nearby school interviewed patients at the Hospital. Using what they learned, the students prepared essays about the patients. The top 10 essays chosen by the school were presented to a panel of judges, including celebrity judge Sunni Genesco.
“The event is an inspiring and heartwarming experience for everyone involved,” says Heather Scott, Director, Development, St. Peter’s Hospital Foundation. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for patients to share knowledge and offer guidance to students who represent the next generation.”
Congratulations to first place winner Lewis Marsman, who received a $500 RESP from Healthcare and Municipal Employees’ Credit Union (HMECU) as his reward. To read Lewis’s winning essay, click here.
