Elementary School Students Demonstrate Good Citizenship at the University of SaskatchewanMarch 20, 2015
On March 20, 2015, children from four Saskatoon elementary schools trekked to the University of Saskatchewan campus to bring messages of harmony and respect to their post-secondary peers. With the leadership of Think Good. Do Good., students from Brunskill School, Cardinal Leger School, Pope John Paul II School, and the Saskatoon Misbah School demonstrated individual and group responsibility for promoting human rights and denouncing discrimination.
This event supported the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The theme for this year’s annual March 21 UN day is, “Learning from historical tragedies to combat racial discrimination today” (for more information).
To demonstrate their commitment, the elementary school students gave every U of S student they spoke with a “think good do good” button. The university students were also challenged with the question, “did you do something good today?”
At the conclusion of the event, Chief Commissioner David Arnot challenged the students from the four schools to continue to “do good.” Chief Commissioner Arnot stated, “I am proud of you for the leadership you have shown today at the University of Saskatchewan, and I challenge you to continue to be leaders at your schools.”
