Seventeen students from Allan Johnstone School from Hardisty, Ab. travelled to Edmonton to participate in WE Day on Fri. Oct. 12, 2018.
These students joined over 16,000 others from over 550 schools across Alberta at Roger’s Place to come together to create a positive impact on the world.
WE Day is a celebration of student contributions to the WE program and the kick-start to another year of inspiration.
Students learned about different issues facing society and how they can create change both locally and globally.
The WE program inspires students to identify the issues that spark their passion and create the change they want to see in the world.
Students of Allan Johnstone School will be selecting one global and one local issue to take action throughout this school year.
They will develop leadership skills and learn how to make a difference in their neighbourhood and world.
