Galt Stu­dent Coun­cil gives big!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion Clé­ment Mo­liner-roy Len­noxville, Sher­brooke

This year, the stu­dent coun­cil at Alexander Galt High School worked ex­tremely hard to or­ga­nize ac­tiv­i­ties to please all the stu­dents in the school. The Stu­dent Coun­cil also sup­ported dif­fer­ent cause: at Christ­mas the stu­dent coun­cil ran the Can-O-Thon, a friendly Boys vs. Girls com­pe­ti­tion to raise non­per­ish­able items for our annual Christ­mas Bas­ket Cam­paign, but that’s not all... through­out the year, the Coun­cil also raised money for the EMMA ROSE FOUN­DA­TION, a foun­da­tion that sup­ports par­ents with chil­dren with Mu­copolysac­cha­ride (MPS) dis­ease. This year, the Stu­dent Coun­cil or­ga­nized sev­eral fundrais­ers: Pie Throw­ing, Help­ing at a Teacher’s Sym­po­sium, Helper for a Day auc­tion, a Car­ni­val Penny Race, the EMMA ROSE Dance and fi­nally, last but not least, the EMMA ROSE SUP­PER at Sebby’s. With all th­ese fundrais­ers, along with do­na­tions, the stu­dent coun­cil raised a lot more than ex­pected: $4,000! As promised, Stu­dent Coun­cil pres­i­dent, Clé­ment Mo­liner-Roy shaved his head at the EMMA ROSE DANCE be­cause they had raised over $1,000, the ob­jec­tive of the coun­cil. Thanks go out to ev­ery­one who at­tended the sup­per, the stu­dents and staff who helped plan it, and Sebby’s for mak­ing it pos­si­ble.

Mem­bers of the Galt Stu­dent Coun­cil and Sebby staff mem­bers put on a suc­cess­ful fundraiser, last week­end, for the Emma Rose Foun­da­tion.
