Westminster Public School raises $3,600 for students in need

Students at Westminster Public School came together to help their peers who may be in financial need. The school held a Move-a-Thon on June 12 and raised $3,600. The event was organized by grade 6 students. 

Principal Amanda Nieman says the final result was a full day of physical fitness activities designed by kids for kids. She noted the students worked as a team to create pledge sheets, promote the event and increase excitement around the school. 

Half of the money will go to the Upper Canada District School Board Champion for Kids. The charity helps students get involved in extracurricular activities and provides financial assistance for other needs. The other $1,800 will go to Westminster to help pay for things like shoes, clothes, backpacks, Christmas dinners, food gift cards and field trips. 

Grade 6 student William Coe says it was awesome because it helped kids in the school, the community and helped the students become better people.
