Our students showed they are Leaders Right Now at the “Leadership Now: Building Me to We communities” on Wed. Feb. 26 at John Fraser SS. We can be so proud. John Fraser SS and TSMS students created truly inspired videos describing their charitable works and the heart of their schools, and students Rebekah, Declan, Ria, Flora, Anisha, Angelie and Linta could not have represented us better as spokespeople introducing Marc Kielburger.
I counted the number of people who were part of our Character Committee: there were close to 40. People moved in and out of the committee, but everyone helped move us closer to the event on Wednesday that will keep our generous spirit burning bright for a long time.
There were many others who contributed to Wednesday: From ambassadors Royal Treatment and TSMS students who ushered guests, took and sold tickets, to gym teachers (and a particular grade 10 class) who volunteered to load and unload chairs, and music students who kept the tempo beautiful.
Marc said that many would give anything to have the opportunities that our students have. He was speaking generally about schools in Canada. But he also noted that he had heard that what we have is something extra special. It’s true and we’re so lucky.
