Montréal, November 8th, 2017

Following Frederick Newman’s initiative, SAP-HCM Architect at IN-RGY , 48 students in the 5th grade elementary school from the Seigneurie des Mille-Isles de Saint-Eustache School Board received new ergonomic chairs.

Inspired to help his local community, Frederick made a suggestion to the IN-RGY leadership team and defended the project to donate to the St-Pierre de Ste-Thérèse school that enabled the purchase of these chairs.


The need for children to have good posture and a proper learning environment is essential: all negative posture habits developed in childhood continue through adulthood. It is therefore important, at a very young age, to adopt the right posture. An ergonomic chair will increase student’s attention and learning levels, creating a safe and positive environment. Needless to say that the existing chairs were old and damaged, causing children to loose concentration during the day.


The children, accompanied by their teachers welcomed this donation with enthusiasm and joy:


What a wonderful moment to leave with the children to replace their old broken chairs with brand new ergonomic onesThank you IN-RGY !, commented the teacher Annie Mathon.
