On Friday, March 4th, our Community Service Team organized a “Community Day” in honour of International Women’s Day. All students, faculty and staff participated in the Community Day, which included a fundraiser for Care Canada and a reflective walk.
Just prior to the walk, the Senior School held an assembly which featured a reading of Audre Lorde’s poem “A Litany of Survival”, and an original work by Tammy, Gr. 10, called “What Does it Mean to Be a Woman?” Following the assembly, the whole school warmed up on the field. The Grade 11 and 12s were once again paired up with their Grade 1-3 “buddy” for the walk.
