“We can make a dif­fer­ence,” notes Brigitte Le­feb­vre-Ma­lyon, Prin­ci­pal of École élé­men­taire catholique de l’Ange-Gar­dien in North Lan­caster, where stu­dents and staff marked World Wa­ter Day, rais­ing funds and awareness to help those around the world who do not have direct ac­cess to drink­able wa­ter. Stu­dents walked in hon­our of par­ents and chil­dren who walk for kilo­me­tres to get wa­ter for their fam­ily. The school com­mu­nity has do­nated $1,112 to the WE move­ment, mean­ing that 44 peo­ple will now have clean wa­ter for life. From left, kneel­ing, Grace Point, Macken­zie Mof­fatt, Ariana Martelle, Kait­lyn Lev­ert and Bri­anna McKin­non, mem­bers of the stu­dent coun­cil who helped with the event. Stand­ing, Mrs. Le­feb­vre-Ma­lyon and Angèle McDonell, the teacher re­spon­si­ble for the ac­tiv­ity.
