October 24, 2004 -
On October 26, 2004, students from Marymount Academy will be hosting NSAID day (National Students Against Impaired Driving) along with students from all across the country. Marymount's OSAID council (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) will be in the DJ booth in the cafeteria with a selection of songs that will promote awareness of this very important NSAID day. An information area will be also be available to answer any questions that students may have.|
In addition, the OSAID council will have more than 500 students and
staff sign their names to the "chain of life,” a huge paper link chain that has become an annual part of NSAID day at Marymount Academy. The signatures on the "chain of life" are a promise that the individuals who have committed to this cause will not drink and drive, nor will they get into a car with a drunk driver. The chain will be posted in the cafeteria to remind everyone involved of their commitment. The goal is to convey the message to everyone in the school and community that “drinking and driving” is never acceptable.
