The amazing students and staff at St Ann, Hamilton raised $970.00 to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society. Staff coordinators Rose Wong and Anne Wettlaufer and their team of volunteers organized the sale of tickets for an Easter Basket raffle and they hosted a a gum day where students purchased a license to be authorized to chew gum for the day. Between the two events, students and staff had opportunity to enjoy a treat while taking time to make a financial contribution to assist with cancer research by the generous donation from the school community to the Canadian Cancer Society. Cancer has touched students, staff and families within our board and community in many different ways, we used the month of April to acknowledge that and raise student awareness on the disease. As a school community it is our goal that with research, hope and prayer, that one day no one will hurt from this disease.
