Grimsby Secondary School Puts Community Needs Front and Centre

For 20 years the staff and students of Grimsby Secondary School have celebrated their partnership with the Grimsby Benevolent Fund (GBF) during the holiday season by collecting food and gifts for families in the Grimsby community. Each homeroom has the opportunity to choose an anonymous family profile and bring in food and gifts to share so that everyone will enjoy a wonderful holiday season. 

On Friday, December 2nd, Students Aware, Student Council and Eagles Mentorship hosted an assembly for staff and students to learn about the work of GBF and to think about volunteerism. Stacy Elia, the Executive Director of GFB (and GSS graduate), spoke to the students about GBF, the needs in the Grimsby community and the “power of one”. We each can make a difference, one person at a time.

There were also presentations from Miles Lambert and Neha Gulati kicking-off the Adopt-A-Family project. Then Tori Waite read the following poem that she wrote about the importance of volunteering. She pointed out the benefits to everyone of volunteering and the importance of completing your forty hours of community service early in high school instead of leaving it to Grade 12 when there are many other stressors and deadlines. 

Following the assembly, the Eagles Mentors worked with their Grade 9 groups  to explore ways that they could each individually give back to the community this month. In their mentorship groups they each wrote their individual commitment to giving to the community and posted it on the Promise Wall in the cafeteria. 

Go Griffin Go!

On Thursday October 6, 2016 Griffin Chusing along with Students Aware held the "Go Griffin Go!" walk for The Labatt Family Heart Centre at Sick Kids in Toronto.  Griffin has been a patient at Sick Kids for over 8 years and asked if his school could give back.  Students Aware jumped at the chance to help a fellow students with his fundraiser to raise $1500. Donations will be accepted on Tuesday October 11 in the cafeteria at lunch and there is also a donation can in the main office for those that have yet to contribute.

Canada Wide Science Fair

This past week two of our GSS Eagles were part of Team Niagara, travelled to Montreal and spent the week, all expenses paid, at the Canada Wide Science Fair. They were fortunate enough to hear Chris Hadfield speak and I'm sure they can tell you about many other excellent adventures during this well-earned and valuable experience. Science Fair requires many hours of work and committment and both of these students worked tirelessly on their projects, allowing them to reach the National level. We want to congratulate Lucas on receiving the Clinical Chemistry Award, the SM Blair Foundation Award, the Manning Achievement Award, and Lucas also received the GOLD MEDAL in the senior division.
