Paul-Desmarais school and Bushtukah join forces to promote student physical activity

Two students from Paul-Desmarais Catholic High School are behind an extraordinary project this year. What a great way to start the school year!

The idea starts with the 10th grade marketing exam, which was like an environmental Dragon’s Den. The students were assigned to do a project highlighting the needs of the school to educate other students about the environment.

Jessica Nguyen and Sasha Mathieu came out of the pack with an amazing project! The idea was that the school could provide students with bicycles to go around the school, on the Trans-Canada Trail or, if they want, go out for lunch. Students may borrow a bike as a reward for good behavior.

Their teacher later approached Bushtukah, who had already a good partnership for the school’s annual La Course des Patriotes. Bushtukah agreed to give 10 new Trek bikes and 10 locks at a discount price. They also agreed to give, free of charge, 10 helmets.

This project is an incredible opportunity to promote physical activity among our youth and promote environmental benefits.

This shows that our students have great ideas and that it is possible to make them live with a little determination. The whole community benefits greatly from those partnerships.

Éric Brassard is a teacher at Paul-Desmarais Catholic High School.
