Red Bluff-Lhtako Elementary, School District #28 (Quesnel)

Here is a wonderful story about our social responsibility inquiry process PAYING IT FORWARD.

Paying It Forward is a movie that we have used at the school to demonstrate our belief system.  Our beliefs are: Responsibility, Acceptance, Cooperation, Respect

Here is a real life example of “Paying it Forward”

During the past year, we have endeavoured to extend our belief system into our community.  Last week at the Sandman, Wendy Wasstrom, grade 7 parent, Educo coordinator was talking on the phone about fundraising for their Educo field trip; ie what they had accomplished and what they still needed.  A couple from Surrey were listening to her conversation and subsequently wrote a check for $1600.00.  IS THAT NOT “PAYING IT FORWARD’!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you to Melody and Merle for their generous donation.  The students are sending them a card, a photo of the group at EDUCO and a small token of their appreciation.
