May 4, 2010 - Community Partners were invited to the Lakehouse at Science North recently by Canadian Blood Services as a thank you for being a part of their Partners for Life program. Several students from St. Benedict, Marymount Academy and Bishop Alexander Carter along with school Chaplaincy Leads Rob Pappin and Jennifer Geddes were presented with plaques for their schools to thank the students and to remind them of the importance of supporting blood donation in the community. Steve Tipman, a representative from Canadian Blood Services spoke to significant efforts of the organizations that have become part of the Partners for Life program. “Knowing that one donation can save three lives, these different organizations have made huge contributions to Canadian Blood Services.” said Tipman. Rob Papin got involved with this program when he was the Chaplaincy Lead at Bishop and continued it when he transferred to St. Benedict. “It is really great to see our students involved in the community.” said Pappin. “It is a great way for students to prepare for their futures by getting them to talk about and take part in these kind of programs today.” Adam Lapatka, a grade 11 student from St. Benedict felt honoured to be a part of Partners for Life and to be a student ambassador for the program at his school. “I wanted to set an example for students and take part in this program. “ said Lapatka. “It is definitely a manageable commitment and one that I encourage all students to sign up for.”
