It was all about food at Central Algoma Elementary School as the Husky Howlers wrapped up their canned food drive for local food banks, got a few Halloween tips from OPP Constable Gauthier, and watched a presentation by the Healthy Living Club at their end of the month assembly.

Members of the Healthy Living Club in Grades 1-6 prepared posters with a healthy suggestions like how to avoid sugar, grow your own garden and get active. The older students read them out loud and gave examples of how they personally do this at home.

Algoma Public Health nurse, Melinda Freer, who works with the clubs at various local schools, says, “The kids in the club are so creative. They made up a healthy food game all on their own.” They would arrange themselves like a vegetable or fruit and the other kids would have to guess what they were, like peas in a pod.

Students who displayed the character trait for October, citizenship, were also recognized and awarded certificates during the assembly.
