Goodfellow Public School in Innisfil recently partnered with Habitat for Humanity Huronia to build model homeless shelters that may be built for communities in the future.
Students in Mme. Bojmelgrin’s and Mme. Prim’s Grade 6 and 7 Extended French classes used skills learned in math, language and science to create three prototypes that were presented to Humanity Huronia’s Construction Manager, Robert Cikoja.
Cikoja was so impressed by the students’ ideas that he offered to work with the school to build models of the mobile homeless shelters. The models may eventually be built in large scale to help local communities.
Habitat for Humanity brings communities together to help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable home ownership. The organization’s simple premise is that no matter who we are or where we are from, we all deserve to have a decent life.
