Clairbourn's middle school is buzzing with the spirit of student leadership. We had an exceptionally large turnout of students wanting to serve their school as Student Council Representatives in this last election cycle. In fact, 37.5 percent of our entire middle school just ran for office!
Clairbourn School, home of the Cougars, encourages the love of learning and supports students in being responsible, respectful, and resilient citizens. One way in which the school brings this to life is through their Service Learning Program.
Andrea M. (in Grade 8) has generously donated new tricycles and a tricycle garage to Clairbourn's Preschool and Kindergarten. The old tricycles were a little rusty and mostly unusable after many years of weather exposure. Andrea has been at Clairbourn for ten years, and she wanted to find a way to give back and show her gratitude for her time at Clairbourn. Through her generous donation, Clairbourn was able to purchase all new tricycles and helmets and construct a sturdy, new tricycle garage.
Clairbourn School's service opportunities for students hold impactful lessons on giving, empathy, selflessness, and kindness. Whether it's donating food or holding a book drive, such opportunities can improve work ethics in young students and can provide them with a sense of greater purpose.
