Water for Kenya
 
On Thursday April 28th, 2011, the Chaminade Leadership Class from 2008 to present, presented Marc Kielburger with a cheque of $8500.00 to Free the Children completing their 2 year long initiative to build a school in Sierra Leone.  Among the guests included Mr. Alan Tonks, MP  and Chaminade alumni.  Students heard Marc speak about his experience in Sierra Leone after the devastation of the 11 year civil war that destroyed the country's infrastructure and school system.  Immediately following his presentation, the students surprised Marc with another cheque for $5000.00 in order to build a water well in Kenya.  Student fundraising initiatives included Pasta Bingo evenings, Karaoke Nights, Bake Sales, Icecream Sales, Raffles, and Popcorn Sales.  Congratulations to the whole Chaminade Community and especially the leadership students who worked toward completing these goals.
