20060428_famine

Grade 7 and 8 students at St Francis School participated in a 24-hour famine, and broke their fast with pizza and snacks yesterday afternoon. The students raised about $2,400 for Development and Peace, the official international development agency of the Catholic Church in Canada. The Grade 4, 5, and 6 students also participated in a coin drive, which is expected to bring the total close to $3,000.
