Haiti Relief Collection presented to the Red Cross

Grade six students at Blackville School recently took up a collection for the Haiti Relief Fund. In just one day, the students raised $1265.54. The students were encouraged to do this as part of being Active Citizens, which is promoted in the Social Studies program. On Tuesday, February 10, the students presented the cheque to Mr. Rod Fraser of the Miramichi Red Cross.
