WE Are Going To WE Day


Thirteen SMO students are heading off to the 10th annual WE Day at the Air Canada Centre on Wednesday, October 19th. These SMO students were chosen because they have participated in many social justice events over the years. Our SMO participants range from grades 5 to 8.  WE Day is an event that inspires students and adults to make a difference in the world.  It raises awareness of issues in developing countries and helps students to recognize local issues as well.  Schools earn tickets to WE Day by being a “WE” school and by participating in local and global events.  At WE Day, motivational speakers talk about their life journeys, and how they have made a difference in the world.  Also many famous singers will perform at the Air Canada Centre, such as Demi Lovato, Macklemore, Jason Derulo, Zendaya and many more.  WE Day was founded by Craig Kielburger.  He and his brother Marc also founded Free The Children.  We hope these students bring back the inspiration so we can all “BE THE CHANGE.”
