Grade 5/6 - 17 Km March for the Homeless
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.
