Aware of the struggle that many Canadian women face to buy hygiene products, our Grade 9 girls recently led a Feminine Products Hygiene Drive as part of their religion class.
Over two weeks, every class in the Barat Academy took part in this special initiative that was fuelled by empathy for women in our community. Little by little, the girls filled boxes with shampoo, sanitary pads, toothpaste, deodorant, and more. The box was also filled to overflowing with love and support.
Well done Grade 7R which collected the most products and in so doing earned themselves a Colour Day. The products, worth over $2,600, will be delivered to local shelters Adsum House and Out of the Cold after March Break. Thanks to Dr. Da Silva for helping the girls coordinate this initiative and big thanks to all the girls and their families who participated.
