Coats and Boots for New Canadians (incoming Syrian Refugees)

Hello Everyone,

Students and Staff have been having some good discussions about our reactions to and understanding of the attacks on Paris and Beirut and on the general question of Refugee settlement.

Between these talks, our recent Arts Showcase, Refuge, SEEDS Me to We, and our new Social Justice and Equity classes, there are many fund-raising and awareness-raising projects going on in the school.  Funds raised will go/have gone towards supporting the Red Cross and other organizations; we are also collecting needed material for the Christie Refugee Centre.  One event that is ongoing and that some parents may wish to participate in is the drive for coats (gently used or new) and boots (gently used or new).  If you are coming in for Parent-Teacher Interviews, please consider bringing in an item for this drive!  (All donations can be brought to our front foyer).
