Westmount Collegiate Grade 12's look to "Change the World"
For generations, youths have been labelled as apathetic, even indifferent and aloof, by their elders. On January 16th, a group of students at Westmount Collegiate shattered that stereotype with each visitor to their Change the World convention, held in the main atrium at the Thornhill school. The students rallied for a myriad of causes as part of their Canadian and World Issues I.S.U. projects that challenged them to find a ways to reverse course and affect positive change on a global scale for people of all ages in this generation. From standing up to homophobia & for the rights of the homeless to organizing food drives, the participants actively found ways to engage their guests in order to raise funds and awareness for their causes. These knowledgable activists proudly showcased movies & demonstrations showing an engagement that went far beyond what letter grade awaited them as part of the assignment. We'd like to congratulate the students in Mr. Orlowski & Ms. Letford's classes for their efforts - not only did they represent their causes with verve, they also offered incredible solutions to complex issues with a passion and sensitivity that will serve them well beyond the walls of their beloved school.
