First Apple Program Supporter

West Point Grey Academy

The Apple Program was first launched at West Point Grey Academy where Ally Maclachlan, Adam’s younger sister, attended. With the help of two wonderful staff members, Dave Chevreau and Shannon Green, the Apple Program was able to connect students together at the “Study” where the bowl was placed.

The “Study” became a place to take a break and converse with peers in times of happiness, loneliness and even grief.

The “Study” soon became a common area where people connected over apples. Within the span of two years, we have noticed an increasing sense of community at WPGA.

We now how student leaders stepping forward and taking initiative to design events to spread awareness on the importance of forming connections with peers.
