Students embrace the spirit of Week Without Walls
|Wednesday, 14 December 2011|
Week Without Walls takes service learning outside the classroom with Senior School students and staff heading to nearly 50 different volunteer sites each afternoon from December 13th to 15th. On Friday, December 16th, everyone will convene here at the School to discuss the impact of their experiences.
Students and staff were eager to head out to their Week Without Walls sites on Tuesday afternoon and to begin giving back to local organizations in Northumberland County, Durham Region, Belleville, Peterborough and Toronto. “We are so proud of the energy and enthusiasm put into this year’s Week Without Walls thus far,” says Kim Vojnov, director of service learning at TCS. “Our students really have embraced the importance of giving to others, especially during this special time of year. Many students came back from their first day of service with great examples of why this week matters.” Some feedback from Tuesday included:
We have also been hearing from our students and staff in Ecuador, working with Me To We on a high school build in San Miguel. You can follow their progress on the TCS Web site (www.tcs.on.ca/ecuador) and also read blog posts from Grade 12 student Katie Stevenson on the Our Kids Web site (click here and click here). We can’t wait to hear first-hand about their adventures when they return to Canada on December 17th.
