Humanitarian projects are happening at Barriere Secondary

Barriere Secondary students who attended We Day are working on humanitarian projects

Pictured are Barriere Secondary students showing a poster of their We Scare Hunger project that will be going on over the next four weeks collecting for the Food Bank.

The Barriere Secondary students who attended We Day are working on the following humanitarian projects around the school:

• We Scare Hunger:   Students will be collecting non-perishable food items over the next four weeks (in time for Christmas Hampers).  We are trying to get 100 items as a school. The items will be collected in Art Room and then donated to the food bank.

• We Create Change :  As the penny is no longer being created, we will be collecting pennies for the month of November and then donating the pennies to ‘Free the Children’.  The money raised will give children in developing countries access to clean water.  Our goal is to fill the large water jug in the office.

The students are asking the community to donate / drop off pennies and food items at the school at any time as well.
