Free hands-on learning activities with physical activity & healthy snacks.
The Spark program was specifically designed to ignite curiosity and a love of learning. It is offered once a week after school at Sunnyside Elementary School and l’École primaire du Jardin-des-Frontières in Stanstead. The Spark program begins with organized playground or gym games that promote physical activity and socialization. After a healthy snack, students take part in hands-on activities, such as science experiments, math games, or a team-building exercises. At Sunnyside, the program began in 2014 and is offered to grades 3-6. The program was expanded to Jardin-des-Frontières in 2019 for students in grades 3 and 4.
Focus is placed on building soft skills, like problem-solving, communication and teamwork, with the goal of building a foundation for employability and a life of autonomy.
