YOL: Grandparents Return to School!

This morning we had many parents and grandparents visit our school to hear about what our grade 5/6 students have been doing as part of the Youth Out Loud program. We were very impressed with the turn out and even more impressed with the work our students have been doing. Each group’s leaders spoke about their cause and what they have done so far to work towards their team’s goal. Grandparents then had the opportunity to visit the classrooms to see the work for themselves and were then invited back for scones and tea in the gallery. Thank you to all parents and grandparents for their gold coin donations. We raised $309.35, which will equate to around $60 per project team.
