On October 13, 30 Kwalikum Secondary students traveled to Vancouver for the experience of a lifetime. Arriving at the school for 5 a.m. to be ready to catch the 6:30 ferry was a challenge for some but nobody would miss We Day for a couple more hours of sleep.

We Day had lots of motivational speakers including Mikhail Gorbachev, Spencer West and Craig and Mark Keilberger, it was truly inspiring. Students also had the opportunity to hear performers like Hedley and Down With Webster.

It was a fun and heartfelt day.

We Day has inspired the KSS students to take their experience forward and start organizing fundraisers for Free the Children as well as our local food bank. We Day has touched KSS and the spirit will keep growing.
