Stories and good wishes about “St. John Bosco Secondary School

  1. St. John Bosco is an amazing school. I have been blessed to teach there for 8 years and look forward to many years to come. Our nutrition program is an integral part of our student’s success, so please, vote for us!

  2. Four months ago I became aware of St John Bosco when I toured the school and met the Principal Kellie and some of the teachers and students. I was truly moved and inspired by their dedication to the young people attending there and how vast the teachings are around not only academics but life skills. They genuinely deserve these funds and it would make a huge impact to those they serve, teach and mentor. Thank you

  3. St John bosco changed my life for the better. I graduated in 2014 and without the school and community, I don’t know where I’d be. I think they deserve this grant.

  4. A wonderful way to support these students and provide them with the skills needed to be successful in their lives.

  5. Bosco is an amazing place for students to be themselves, learn and feel safe. They would greatly benefit from the funding for a nutrition program.

  6. I know with a steady and stable food & nutrition program, St John Bosco will be able to continue to support students so that they can be successful with their goals ♥️

  7. I would never have graduated either 5 or so years ago if it weren’t for Bosco. Totally life changing school.

  8. I have witnessed the transformation of young people in our community through the specialized wrap around support they receive at St. John Bosco. As food is prepared and shared there is room for everyone at the table. Snacks and shared meals nourish a sense of community and minds that are hungry for learning. Our purpose, to make a difference, is lived daily out daily through the kindness offered by our staff and community partners so that our young people realize their full potential.

  22. This school is vital to our community and allows students who might otherwise slip through the cracks to achieve their full potential!

  23. I have seen first hand the positive impact that St. John Bosc has on the students attending. The relationships formed between the staff (including occasional teachers) and students are ones that the students need. It allows them to work at the pace they need, with the right amount of support. For them to be able to hire a nutrition coach, it would benefit all of the students, allowing them to create healthy options for themselves and their peers. I cannot think of anyone who is more deserving of this!

  24. There is no doubt that the program at SJB has worked. I’ve seen it firsthand and feel honoured to have been allowed to participate in a supportive capacity!

  25. I see students every day who’s only nutrition comes from the food we provide. Some of them can’t even eat anything because of the stress and trauma they’ve experienced. How can we expect them to learn when treatment nourished?

  26. This program teaches young people healthy living and eating. They can learn this as young adults and carry it through their entire life and then teach their own children one day. It gives them the energy and nutrition they need at this time in their lives to be successful during the next stages of life.

  27. I see the care and thoughtfulness that goes into supporting these kids, some of whom do not get any support elsewhere.

  28. As a teacher I have been thrilled to see how many children this school has helped to achieve their educations. I have had many former students tell me that if it wasn’t for "Bosco" they would not be In the good places they are now. And it was not just the learning aspect of this place. It was a place of caring and support that meant so much.

  29. What a great program. Wonderful these students have a safe and nutritional environment to learn in.

  30. Great idea for students to be encouraged to come to a place they can learn and be given the necessities of life and be successful.

  31. The program at this wonderful school is excellent, and I think a nutrition coach would be a great addition to an already stellar community.

  32. What a terrific idea. Ensuring students are successful. Can only happen with good nutrition and caring environment.
