Global Club – “We are Rafikis!”

The Global Club is kicking off 2015 with a brand-new fundraiser for Free the Children called “We are Rafikis!” These chains are available at a cost of $10 each. Sound expensive? The Rafikis (the Swahili word for “friend”) can be used as necklaces, bracelets, hairbands etc. Moreover, each is handmade with glass beads by a Kenyan artisan who is helping provide for her family. Each chain comes with an individual tracking code so you can see exactly what your money is going towards.

Consider one for yourself or a friend today- email katherinebussey@nlesd.ca for more details or to order.

Parents/ Guardians of Students in Grade 8:

As part of “Safe and Caring Schools” initiatives developed under our School Development plan, we are pleased to partner with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary in helping deliver their S.T.R.I.V.E. program in the coming weeks.

S.T.R.I.V.E (Students Taking Responsibility In Violence Education)

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary S.T.R.I.V.E program has been designed to provide information on youth violence with a focus on empowering students to create safe environments within their schools and communities . The program aims to focus on respect, responsibility, empowerment and action for individuals. Where there is respect and responsibility, it is hoped that empowerment and action against youth violence will follow.

Thank you once again for your continued support of our learning community.

Sincerely,
Edward A. Connolly, Principal
