Dear STM School Community,

This year our grade 6 students will be working within a group to help achieve the 17 Sustainable Global Goals. In 2015, our world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals were created by the leaders of the United Nations ( a.k.a. The U.N.) These include some well known goals, like No Poverty and Zero Hunger but also some that are less well known to the common community, like Reduced Gender Inequalities.  

The Global Goals project includes schools from around the world like Australia, South America, and Asia and brings them together into groups of 17. The grade 6 students will be working on goal number 1:  No Poverty, while other schools in our group (Group 14) will be working on the others. Each group has 17 schools for the 17 goals. 

This will be a long term Deep Learning project and will be in process the entire year. Our first of several initiatives will take place during the Thanksgiving season. During this time we will be collecting canned food.  We would ask that you make a donation of canned food in the next two weeks prior to Thanksgiving, beginning Tuesday, Oct. 1. The food proceeds will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank.

If you would like to learn more about the 17 sustainable goals, you can go to

Thank you for your amazing support.
