As part of our character education program, King Edward students are challenged to Make a Difference (M.A.D.) in their school, community and world. At any given time of the year, you can catch our students GOING M.A.D. for a cause. Take a minute to read the inspiring stories of King Edward Lions showing their caring character.
Mrs. Phillips-Brescoe's grade 2/3 class had the bright idea that they wanted to help families in the developing world. They found a charity where they could purchase a flock of chickens to support a family for $20.00. With this as a goal, they held a cookie sale on Valentine's Day with all proceeds going to their project. They wrote announcements and made posters to promote their fund raiser. In the end they raised $175.00 which meant they could buy a goat, a vegetable garden and a bee keeping operation for needy families. King Edward Lions have great character!
