Jenna Donates to EtCWhen Jenna - a Grade three student at Jean Vanier Catholic Elementary School - had a birthday party last week, she asked for something different - not the usual birthday presents. She wanted something she could share; something that would live on.

She asked her guests to donate money to Educate the Children, a charity that is raising funds to build a school in rural Nigeria.

Here is what happened: Jenna raised $200.00 and presented the Chairperson of Educate the Children, Liz Akano, with a cheque at the Spring Concert on Sunday evening. The concert was held in St. Justin's church on Sunday, March 27 and featured Denise Pelley and several singer/song writers and choirs

The 2015 H. B. Beal Summer School staff and student raised $400 during their multicultural day celebration held on the school ground on Wednesday. July 23. Students gathered to share foods from different cultures and listened to music from several cultures complement of Mr. R. Andrews, the summer school supervisor.

H.B. Beal students from Mrs. Liz Akano's BOG4E1 Business Leadership class have donated the proceeds from their Apprenticeship Challenge (over $400) to help fellow students on the other side of the world.

Through the charitable organization Educate the Children, the Beal students are helping to provide infrastructure, learning materials, school uniforms, and scholarships to students in rural Nigeria.

Educate The Children recently launched a "Children Helping Children" campaign in schools across the Valley, and will extend the campaign to the Catholic Board in early 2011.

On hand as the students presented their check to VP of the board of Educate the Children, Ken Williams, were Beal Principal Mr. Don Macpherson, proud teacher Mrs. Akano, and London Fanshawe MPP Mr. Khalil Ramal.
