QPF, firefighters and CLSC team up for Meals on Wheels: On Sunday, Quyon and area residents were treated to breakfast at the Beach Barn. What they got was more than just a hot meal. They also got service with smiles by officers from the Hull detachment of the Quebec Police Force, Quyon firefighters and CLSC employees.
In an effort to bring the services closer together and closer to the community, they went all-out to provide a hot breakfast at no cost to anyone who came through the doors.
Success program continues despite government cutbacks: Students from Pontiac Protestant High School in Shawville gathered at the school to protest cutbacks in government funding for a program aimed at reducing the drop-out rate.
The School Success Project had begun to provide a positive identity for the 20 students enrolled in the program at PPHS. Principal Ellard Perry has vowed to continue the School Success Program even without school board funding. “We’re trying to salvage the program,” says Perry. “Something will be worked out.”
Diane Fyfe, head of students services for the West Quebec School Board says that the program has been underway since November. This has been made possible, Fyfe says, due to the goodness and flexibility of the staff and principal at PPHS.
