Students get real

With a name like Reality Week, it’s a sure bet students at Clayton Heights Secondary will be learning about life beyond the classroom.

Members of Clayton Heights Secondary’s Project Equal Club helped organize a week of awareness-raising activities.

With a name like Reality Week, it’s a sure bet students at Clayton Heights Secondary will be learning about life beyond the classroom.

Members of the school’s socially-conscious Project Equal club along with teacher/sponsors Sarah Daintrey, Lara Hayward and AnneMarie Miranda, planned the event, which runs April 10 to 13 and features a different theme each day.

Classes sign up for different guest speakers, activities and films.

This year, topics include the environment, distracted driving, mental health and peer support, and making the world a better place.

Presenters include Olympian Margaret Langford, the “Drop it and Drive” drivers’ safety team, a scientist from SFU and more.

Later this month, the club is organizing a 36-hour famine.
