St. Agnes’s International Child – Tharsise

Every Year St. Agnes School uses a portion of the money we raise on Mission Day to help a child somewhere in the world through Plan International Canada.  Plan Canada sends us a little update to let us know how our Sponsored Child is doing and how our money has helping our child and their community.

Tharsise T. is a 9 year old boy living in Rwanda, Africa.  He attends primary school and his favourite subject is math.  Tharsise has been ill this year, but he received treatment at the health facility and is now fully recovered.  There has been a new addition to his family, they have welcomed a new baby girl this year.

Plan International helps children around the world with; education, clean drinking water, sanitation systems, basic healthcare, and helping parents to improve their livelihood.

We have a picture of Tharsise in the office.

Thank you for supporting Tharsise and Plan International!!!

Break a Rule Day! – Tuesday June 13th

On Tuesday, June 13th, 2017, the students are going to have an opportunity to break some rules at school. The Spirit Team has organized this day in support of our St. Agnes Church initiative to assist the Pura Vida Foundation. This is a not-for profit organization that provides transitional housing and life skill training for young women in Peru. All proceeds raised will be donated to this foundation. Students are invited to pay $1 to break any of the following rules:

·         Wear a hat in school

·         Bring a stuffed animal to school

·         Wear pajamas to school

·         Chew gum in school

·         Switch desks in the classroom

Remember, it costs $1 for each rule that you want to break!

Donate and have fun!
