Legacy Project 2015
Representatives from each of the Grade 8 Leadership classes presented their Legacy Project proposals to the Legacy Advisory Committee, made up of staff members and Grade 7 students. Their goal was to convince the panel that their local organization should be chosen as the recipient of a $5,000 grant from the Rotherglen Children’s REACH Foundation. Each presentation consisted of a well-rehearsed speech about their organization’s purpose, why the students believed it was a worthy cause, and the type of commitment Rotherglen would invest in order to help support the project for the remainder of the school year. A creative student video was also shown during each presentation. We are very proud of the efforts put forth by each of the four classes. They demonstrated great dedication, not only to their cause but also to the learning process. After careful consideration, the Advisory Committee has selected The Lighthouse as the winning Legacy Project for the Class of 2015. The funding will go towards helping support groups for children, tweens, teens, and their parents who are grieving over the death of a family member. The Lighthouse has been in operation in Oakville for many years and provides an invaluable service to the community.
