On November 27, 2021, our 5th and 6th-grade students at Weekend School, project name Youth Academy organized a Children’s Fair under the guidance of Ms Havle to help children living in foster care in Canada. After 2 months of planning and preparation, 14 of our students sold their handmade items, jewellery, toys and food at the fundraising. In addition, they kept the fund-raising area alive with activities such as face painting, balloon folding. The most interesting part of the fundraising was that the organizers, sellers and buyers were all our Weekend School students. At the end of the day, $2,024 was donated to children staying in the York area of the Foster Parents Society of Ontario.
We are very happy to contribute to one of Canada’s social issues with such a social responsibility project.
