GREAT WATER WALK

posted May 3, 2017, 5:56 PM by Leah Ashford
Thursday, May 18th, is our Fernwood Water Walk! Students at Fernwood Elementary will be raising money for SOPAR, an organization that helps to build wells in villages in India. For more information about SOPAR, visit - http://sopar.ca/en/index.php Please consider donating to this worthy cause!

On the day of the Great Water Walk, students will experience what many children experience every day - a long walk to get fresh water for the family, carrying heavy containers of water. Our students will walk to St Mary's Lake and back (with age appropriate amounts of water to carry). 

Parents are welcome to join in the walk! Details were sent home this week including a pledge form and envelope, and regular updates can be found here on our school webpage.
