TEPF Presents a cheque to St. Francis High School

Calgary, AB- Students at St. Francis High School have an urge to make this world a better place.  Starting in November 2017, these students have a number of activities planned around the Calgary area to bring awareness to many social justice issues, all spearheaded by their teacher, Miss Anna Ponce. These activities are going to be made possible with funding provided by The Educational Partnership Foundation.

What started as a simple grade 10 social studies project, where the students were challenged to create projects that would raise awareness about a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) or developing country turned out to be full blown campaigns that transcended the walls of the classroom. Many of the projects required extra time, effort, and commitment, as grade 10 students are raising awareness of injustices experienced by the local and global community.  St. Francis High School envisions these grade 10 projects as a springboard to a Social Justice Club, and to create a sustainable social justice program where students are engaged in the community around them.

“TEPF is extremely proud to support these students and teachers through their journey to promote awareness of the many issues facing our society today.” explains Kevin Strybosch, Manager of Programs & CEO with TEPF.

TEPF visited St. Francis High School on the afternoon of November 22, 2017 to present Ms. Ponce and her students with the cheque for $600.
