The Grade 6 Grads are donating $430 from monies raised from their fundraising efforts to support seniors' long-term care in our community. The Grade 6's undertake a number of fundraisers in order to raise monies toward their graduation ceremony and end of year activities. Given the uniqueness of this year, and the need to follow strict public health measures in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, regular graduation activities and celebrations could not take place. As a result, the Grads decided to donate leftover funds instead of saving them for a sunnier day. In total, the Grads raised over $4000, which they used to pay for Grad T-Shirts, Yearbooks, decorations, and grad and teacher gifts.
The pandemic has revealed the critical need to improve the living conditions of long-term care facilities for our senior Canadians. The Wakefield Elementary School Grade 6 Class of 2020 is pleased to be able to help in this effort.
