Interact hosted a clothing drive to provide clothing to those in need in our local community until February 28th this year. The donations that were received all went to a cause in the Lower Mainland that they have worked with for many years called Freshwave Ministries. Staged as a competition between the classes, classes had two weeks to bring in any unwanted or unused clothes in their house and the class that had the most clothes, calculated by weight, won. The class that put the most effort into this fundraising competition was Ms. Koot's Block E class. They won themselves a Tim Hortons breakfast. Overall, Interact raised 312 pounds worth of clothing for the less fortunate! That’s a lot! But let’s hope that next year we can better ourselves and collect even more clothes than previous years. Keep the giving spirit going SDSS; be sure to support more events that Interact has to offer in the future!

To support Anti-Bullying Day this Wednesday, February 26th, Link Crew held a mini carnival in the Cafeteria though surprisingly, there wasn't much response. The music was pumping, the cotton candy machine was whirring, the booths were ready yet possibly only about 50 people passed through. And with a photo booth, a carnival game, a compliment wall and even the Delta Opposes Violence Everywhere committee handing out chocolate, it was expected that this event would be a success as was last year's. It couldn't have been a lack of knowledge with many windows painted, telling students about Anti-Bullying Day February 26th, announcements and the cafeteria filled with people buying their lunch so what was it? Some say that word of mouth would have been more effective. Others just weren't interested. All in all, the idea was a success but the outcome, not so much.
Photos from the photo booth can be seen online on Facebook or Instagram. The compliment wall has been resurrected on the bulletin board near the Main Hall.
