Happy Thanksgiving to you all! There is so much to be thankful for.
This past Friday, our class had the wonderful opportunity to deliver the amazing amount of diapers and baby wipes donations. In total, we had 839 diapers of various sizes, and a large amount of baby wipes packages to donate. The director of the Island Pregnancy Centre chatted with the students, explained a little bit about what they do at the centre, gave us a tour of the Baby Boutique, and allowed us to help sort the diapers into packs of 10 (as this is how they hand them out). I don’t think I can adequately express just how wonderful it was to see the children get so excited and involved. What a fantastic way for them to learn that everyone has the capacity to help, even in small ways. There is a short video which includes footage of our visit to the IPC on the GCS Facebook page. Special thanks to you all for your donations, and an extra-special thank you to Mrs. Kelly for offering to help drive our students when our bus plans had to be cancelled.
Our students will be competing in another shorter cross country run on Tuesday, October 12. Be sure students are ready with water bottles, gym clothes, and extra socks as the grass may be wet.
