School Announcements and Involvement
We invite you to join us in supporting Green Shirt Day on the days prior to April 7th, since we know Good Friday being a holiday might make things difficult! By participating in Green Shirt Day, we can honour the legacy of Logan Boulet and raise awareness about the importance of organ donation.
We kindly request that you consider allowing students and teachers to wear green shirts or their favourite hockey jerseys to school on April 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th to show support for organ donation. This will not only help raise awareness about the importance of organ donation but also honour the memory of those affected by the Humboldt Broncos bus crash.
In addition, we encourage the administration to consider incorporating lessons on organ donation and the Logan Boulet Effect into the curriculum leading up to April 7th. This will provide students with an opportunity to learn about this important topic and inspire them to become registered organ donors in the future.
