Stelly’s Secondary students ready for a trip of a lifetime

Fundraiser Nov. 20 for the Central Saanich school's Global Perspectives students.

  • Nov. 18, 2014 6:00 p.m.

CENTRAL SAANICH — What are you doing over Spring Break?

In March of 2015, the Stelly’s Global Perspectives class will be embarking on the journey of a lifetime: travelling to Fiji to work on a development project.

Students will be fundraising for the trip that will see them help build a much-needed library addition onto an existing elementary school.

The Stelly’s Global Perspectives course is for students who are passionate about making a difference in their world.

On Thurs., Nov. 20 from 5 to 9 p.m., students will host the annual Global Gala Fundraiser at the school. All funds raised at the Gala will be spent on the project in Fiji, not on student expenses. Tickets are $15, available at the door.
