Vision

Our vision for Canada is… to provide inviting green spaces for people to relax in and enjoy. Such spaces can be used to reflect, relax and improve mental health. Mental Health is a very real issue in society and we wish provide an outlet.

Action

This was a Creative, Active, Service (CAS) project developed by students in the International Baccalaureate Programme at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School. The student goal was to create a sustainable garden at the school. They connected with the chaplain of the school who is interested in developing a space for religious reflection. These ideas combined to create the space that class can have religious retreats in and for individuals to rest and relax. Both aspects can help to improve the mental health of students. Mental health is an issue that is great concern in our busy, modern society. Everything was designed and implemented by the students.

Reflection & Celebration

Due to the very wet and cool weather, our project will not be finished by the due date for this submission.
At this stage we would say that weather, obtaining funds were difficult. Working with others and trying to come up with a consensus is challenging. At the this stage the project has been successful.
