PETES students rock duringWe Day
Twelve students from Pierre Elliott Trudeau Elementary School in Vaudreuil-Dorion were rocked by a simple message while attendingWe Day at Théâtre St-Denis last Friday.
The kids from grades 4, 5 and 6 listened to words of change and hope delivered by actress and activist Mia Farrow, former Canadian astronaut and VaudreuilSoulanges political candidate Marc Garneau, Craig and Marc Kielburger, co-founders of Free The Children and international children's rights activists, andMontreal rock band Simple Plan.
Cathy Roberts, a grade 4 teacher at PETES likened the day "going to a rock concert. There was so much hope and energy; you really did feel like anything was possible."
We Day was created by the Free the Children effort as a way to empower young people to create positive change. More than 51,000 students have attended free events acrossCanada.
The PETES students say they will support Free The Children's Adopt aVillage program and will also take on the challenge to aid a program in theirowncommunity.
