Marymount Academy Students Unite Against Impaired Driving

November 1, 2004 - Students from Marymount Academy hosted “NSAID” Day (National Students Against Impaired Driving) along with students from high schools all across the country recently. To help focus on the day’s theme, Marymount's OSAID council (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) played a selection of songs that promoted awareness of this very important event. An information area was also set up in the cafeteria to answer questions from the student body.

The OSAID council had 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 was posted in the cafeteria to remind everyone involved of their commitment. The goal of the “chain of life” is to convey the message to everyone in the school and community that “drinking and driving” is never acceptable.
