CHANGEMAKERS CLUB: YOUTH IMPACTING THE WORLD - RECOG.
The Changemakers is a group of Grade 4 to 6 students who want to make a difference in the world around them. The program was founded after students researched the United Nations Goals for Sustainable Development. They discovered how the goals could impact people on a local and global scale and that there was much they could do to change the world around them.
With the guidance of their teachers Jacqulyn Reid and Karen Van Buskirk, the students have taken on a number of issues. They have had great success in making reusable beeswax snack bags. They are building and decorating bee boxes, and they have been involved in many community activities like the Crichton Park's Feed Nova Scotia program, partnering with Alice House for the Fresh Start for Families campaign, and cleaning the school grounds.
The Changemakers Club is a remarkable example of what youth in Dartmouth North and across the province are capable of when given the opportunity to make a difference.
I ask the members of this House to join me in recognition of the Changemakers of Crichton Park School for their outstanding achievements and dedication to making a difference.
