"Absolute" Rocks St. Charles College

April 16, 2004 - St. Charles College students were recently treated to a performance by Absolute, the high energy rock group with a message. This special presentation was part of the Empowered Student Partnership (ESP) program, a pilot project between the SCDSB, St. Charles College and the police that empowers students to be the driving force for safe schools.

The groups performance consists of 14 young members using a large sound system and light show in a concert atmosphere. Crowd participation is key to the success of this group who share personal stories with the students to bring home hard hitting messages focusing on alcohol and drug abuse, suicide, bullying, sexual abuse, impaired driving and pre-marital sex. Absolutes key message to its audience throughout the two hour performance centred on the untapped potential in this generation of young people...the belief that the value of life and purpose of life can make a difference in this world for today and for tomorrow. The group also maintains that when society only sees the problems, it is difficult to find the solutions. Absolute is attempting to fill that need in this generation; helping them through the problems by focusing on their future.
