On Friday, April 15th, students are invited to participate in “We Are Silent”, an opportunity to take at least a moment to reflect and stand with those around the world who may not have a voice. Students will choose who they would like to be silent for (e.g., animal rights, bullying, mental health, gender equality).
The Me to We Club, who is facilitating our school’s participation in “We Are Silent,” has been exploring the Truth and Reconciliation Report this year. The group has decided to collect funds to support the library on the Georgina Island Reserve. This focus supports both reading, and members of our larger school community.
Students in grade 5-8 who are participating will have brought home pledge forms last week (due April 18th). Students from Kindergarten to grade 4, if interested in participating, are invited to bring in any loose change on Friday.
