Students from Michelle Kurtz’s Grade 9 Physical Education and Health Class at are making the holidays a little brighter for those less fortunate.

The students organized a hat day, where students and staff at St. Thomas Aquinas High School made a donation in order to wear their hat in the school. The class was able to raise $300. From the money raised they were able to purchase 6 gifts, for kids in their age group, to donate to Women’s Shelter Saakaate House.

Student Jaxen talked about how it feels to be able to give back.

“I mean it obviously feels good, because we know there are some people out there who might not be able to have the greatest Christmas. So it’s good to give back like this,” he said.

Fellow classmate Finn said he hopes it makes a difference.

“I hope it will make a lot of people’s Christmases a lot better and it will help people who need these things. It makes you feel good to give back,” he said.
Student Abby explained what she and her classmate Maddy chose for a gift.
“We chose a volleyball themed gift. So we included a volleyball, headphones, socks. Everything I would want as a 14-year-old girl,” she said.

“I’m happy we did it and hope we help make someone’s Christmas” said Maddy.

Charlotte Rosewarne from Women’s Shelter Saakaate House was on hand to receive the donation.

“I was tearing up because it’s incredible to see young people be aware of some of the struggles that other people have, and to be mindful that they can do a little bit to help out. It’s just wonderful to see,” she said.

Rosewarne added they are always looking for donations for older children and teenagers who are typically harder to buy for.
