Chinook High School’s Leadership Class includes students from Grades 9-12, who generate ideas on how to give back to the community and the school.
Leadership ideas have increased school spirit, mindfulness, volunteerism, as well as increased community involvement.
The class has invited two senior centres to attend a Seniors’ Tea – Giving Back, on May 25, where the class will treat them to an afternoon filled with the musical talents of students and staff, as well as tea and snacks prepared by Chinook’s students.
“This idea was generated from a high school in Regina, Saskatchewan, and we are adding our own Chinook twist,” said Alli Aos, Chinook High School Leadership Student and co-chair for the Seniors’ Tea. “We hope this event will be an example of how giving back to our community can be a simple act of giving our time and our talents with no cost to attend.”
Over 50 Chinook students will volunteer their time in various roles, such as musicians, performers, servers, decorators, organizers and many others. In addition, Chinook staff members are volunteering their time to facilitate the community outreach event.
“This opportunity will give us, the students, an opportunity to make connections with seniors in our community and learn about the various aspects of planning a large event,” said Aos.
The leadership class is seeking donations for the event, in the form of financial contributions or donations of trays of squares, fruit or vegetables. Those looking to assist with the event can contact Aos at 403-593-4551.
