Mrs. Shepherd’s Social 10-1 class presented a cheque of more than $2,100 to the Friends of the Congo organization during a Skype session scheduled for today. The students have been working on social-activism projects since Project Week to raise money and awareness for the current issues in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The William E. Hay students have donated the money to the Friends of the Congo, a non-government organization concerned with giving youth in the DRC a voice. The money from their fundraising efforts will go toward buying technologies and generators for youth. Congratulations to the William E. Hay students for a job well done.

Congratulations to Kiera Lotoski, Erin Yaremcio, Cianna Zweifel, Justina Nibourg, Tanner Finlay and Savannah Severin for their award-winning entries into the Legion’s Remembrance Day competition. Well done!

The “Be the Change Team” was busy fundraising this week for the Relay for Life, which is set for Friday. Teachers volunteered to have water balloons thrown at them. Students paid $1 for two water balloons or $5 for 12 and were able to soak their teachers during lunch hour on Tuesday. The “Be the Change Team” will, for the fourth year in a row, be participating in Stettler’s Relay for Life.

Students are busy winding down the school year and preparing for exams. The last day of classes for Grade 12 students is June 20. We wish all of our Grade 12s the best of luck in their future endeavours.

The last day for grades 9 to 11 students is on June 21. Exam exemption forms will be handed out to students on June 19. Parents and TA teachers must sign those forms for students who are eligible to exempt their exams.
