WE day: broadcast tomorrow evening

The WE movement (formerly known as Free The Children) is a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world. Today, we are millions of passionate youth, women and men working together to shift the world from “me” to “we.” At St. Andrew’s, our StAnd UP club helps us move from ME to WE by volunteering, fundraising and raising awareness to help make a difference in our community, country and environment.

WE day is an annual event celebrating change-makers. It will be broadcast tomorrow on CTV @ 7 PM ET & 4 PM PT. Take a look at WE – a movement empowering people to change the world.

The play’s the thing… Romeo and Winifred, that is!

Tonight at 7, the St. Andrew’s cast performs the fourth and final show of “Romeo and Winifred.” Students from SAJH and our feeder schools have enjoyed two performances thus far, with the third happening as I write!
