St. Benedict Teachers get taped-up in support of NOFCC!
St. Benedict Teachers get taped-up for families of children with canc

February 13, 2018 - The grades 7/8 Aware Bears organization at St. Benedict supports charitable causes in the community.

This year, a lot of the funds raised will go to Northern Ontario Families of Children with Cancer, NOFCC.

With more than 25 hundred dollars raised already, Mrs. Trowbridge, a teacher at the school got an idea to duct tape teachers to the walls of the gym as a means to raise even more money for the cause using the house system.

All students in the school are grouped into houses as a means to build spirit and friendships at the school so the event became even more of a challenge worth winning.

Mr. Posteraro and his house, Mkwaa won the challenge by keeping him taped up to the gym wall for the longest period of time.

An additional 732 dollars was raised during the challenge.

Mrs. Trowbridge says the event was ďan awesome show of spirit and support with the best teachers and student body going.Ē
