École Routhier School’s sixth-grade students have embarked upon a leadership initiative centred around presenting diverse oat-based recipes to their school community.

Last month, the school received a large donation of oats from the Town of Falher, and Staff recognized an opportunity for learning and mentorship. Each month, students will plan and prepare a different oat-based recipe. They will then share the prepared recipe with each class, along with a presentation on how the food’s ingredients vitalize our bodies. The project aims to build leadership skills among ERS grade six students while also creating ongoing opportunities for relationship-building between the students and the school’s wellness coach.

This leadership project ties into health, nutrition, food preparation, public speaking, life skills, leadership, citizenship, and mentorship, as well as showcasing agriculture, a significant industry in our area.

The students have provided incredibly positive feedback about the project and have expressed excitement about the new taste test. They asked staff if they could do this every week and inquired about the other ways they could act in a leadership role as a class. It was great to see students’ confidence grow as they tackled each presentation and how they supported each other in offering positive and respectful feedback.

Great job, École Routhier!
