Grade 5/6 - 17 Km March for the Home­less

Moose Jaw - - Faces Region - Sub­mit­ted by Vi­vian Gau­vin, Teacher

The grade 5/6 class at Ecole Pal­liser Heights school were tak­ing their stu­dent ac­tivism to the streets of MJ. They de­cided they wanted to do some­thing and that some­thing was go­ing on a 17 km March: rais­ing aware­ness for home­less­ness. Their first stop was Cen­tral col­le­giate where they shared facts about poverty and home­less in Canada to var­i­ous classes. The next stop was to River­side mis­sion to drop off their food dona­tions. They then walked to Wakamow and then back for lunch as they were in­vited to eat at River­side mis­sion. The next drop was AEP and then Prince Arthur school.

The last stop was at the mayor’s of­fice where a meet­ing was ten­ta­tively sched­uled for a fu­ture date.
