St. Vital Catholic School is hosting a special student-created drama production called, Cool to Care Tour, at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 30.
Viewings will begin about every 15 minutes between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. The last 'tour' will begin at 7:30 p.m.
This one-hour educational and entertaining event highlights social justice issues of concern to students and some Canadian youth who are cool for caring. This interactive production will take spectators around the school and around the world.
Student tour guides will lead small groups to scenes taking place in countries such as Africa to examine how inexpensive nets can prevent the spread of malaria and Mexico to consider how some people outside of Canada are living in a manner that cannot be sustained long term.
In addition to global child poverty issues, scenes also explore themes relevant to Canadian youth such as bullying and aboriginal issues.
If you are unavailable in the evening but are interested in a daytime viewing, please call St. Vital School at 937-2233. The school encourages $5 donations for adults and $2 donations for children. All money collected will be given to the food bank’s milk program and a school in Ecuador through Free the Children.
