Every year our Community Engagement teams in Calgary and Edmonton reach out to schools to connect with the students and their teachers. It’s an opportunity for discussion and/or volunteering with us as a class.
The students are very compassionate and are often inspired to help people in need.
We are grateful for their gifts and also the cards and letters they send to us.
These quotes come from students at the Third Academy in Calgary and from students at Monsignor Fee Otterson School and St. Martha School, both in Edmonton.
