Me To We Day – October 2nd

posted in: Home Page News | 0

A number of grade 7 and 8 students will be travelling to and participating in this year’s Me To We Day.  Held in Toronto for the past several years, Me To We brings youths together with individuals who have made exceptional contributions to society.  The goal is to inspire today’s youth and have them make positive changes in the world themselves.  This year’s line-up includes some impressive people from all walks of life: Colonel Chris Hadfield (a Canadian astronaut) to Queen Noor of Jordan to Joe Jonas to Nelly Furtado.

 

DGH is sending 15 students along with 2 staff members to participate.  To participate in this event the DGH Me To We team has to commit to do charitable acts in the school, nationally and globally.  The idea behind this is to give students a global perspective on the world.  There is no doubt that the DGH Me To We team will do great things for the rest of the year.  You should also know that the intent is for the students to take the initiative (as opposed to school staff driving what takes place).

 

Thank you to Mrs. Cayley, Mrs. Read and Mrs. Graham for organizing this year’s team and for supporting the student team for the remainder of the year!
