Loonie Line Assembly on May 11th

posted in: Home Page News | 0

While this post may be a little late in coming, it doesn’t diminish the importance of what was accomplished by this event.  Please read below!


DGH had our Loonie Line WE Walk for Water Assembly on Friday, May 11th. We celebrated leadership, charitable efforts, kindness and citizenship of DGH students.


WE Charity is an organization that is about children helping children. It is about young leaders making a difference for themselves, their schools, their communities and the world around them. Making a difference and giving hope can start with a smile and  a “hello”, co-operating on a sports team or collaborating on a musical, playing favourite tunes in a band and helping our friends with their learning. All of our Huskies do these things everyday to make a difference!


Our Loonie Line and Walk for Water raised some funds which we will be donating to WE Charity for clean water and education, WE Walk for Water was a new event in which we walked around the track and school to represent the many kilometres children walk for water everyday because they have no running water where they live.


Thank you to the DGH community for all your spirit!  Please check out the photos on our DGH Facebook page.


Thank you to the Student Council and Ms. Cayley (under whose direction all of this took place) for organizing this very worthwhile event! Thank you, DGH community, for your generous support of the WE charity. For the past several years, DGH has sent a WE team to the annual WE Concert in Toronto; one of the conditions of participating in this event is supporting local and international charities. DGH has certainly done this throughout its existence!
