"It’s not about school anymore"

Last week two of our grade 9 students were interviewed on CBC radio about all the municipal election projects they’ve been working on.

Armed with campaign materials and a boat load of political enthusiasm, our grade 9s spent two hours one afternoon walking around convincing university students to vote.
