This year's conference was developed and designed by student ambassadors to help motivate student attendees to give back to their communities while maximizing their potential, and planning for future pathways.
"One Child, One Family, One School, One Community," was the motto of the 'Make a Difference' program during the programs launch atGlen Street P.S.
Oshawa Trustee and Board Chair, Michael Barrett stated, "It is wonderful to be part of an initiative that provides supports and services to our families and ensure students have the resources they need and know we are working to make a difference for them."¶
Students started small by helping friends and classmates to make snacks
and sandwiches for other classes; tying the shoelaces of younger kids; showing kids how to kick a soccer ball and making friends with fellow students who may not have had a friend. Their accomplishments were just beginning as the community would soon find out.
