Buy a Brick Campaign

As of October 2017, there have been several significant climate disaster events (measured by damages exceeding $1 billion), affecting millions of people globally.  As a school situated one of the wealthiest communities in Ontario (33% higher than the national average income), this is an educational opportunity for SDSS students to develop awareness of the crises facing communities who are struggling to survive and rebuild.

Students are developing awareness of the social, economic, environmental and political impacts of these disasters and have the opportunity to  show SDSS's Support of the Red Cross International Disaster Relief Fund by raising money through the class "Buy A Brick" campaign, popcorn and bake sales, as well as online donations (please the link below).  

Donations of any amount are appreciated and can made at:

Take Our Kids to Work is the signature program of The Learning Partnership, a national charitable organization dedicated to supporting, promoting and advancing public education in Canada. Now in its twenty-third year, Take Our Kids to Work annually involves more than 200,000 students in a day of career exploration and learning about the skills required in the world of work. On Wednesday, November 1, 2017, Grade 9 students from Saugeen District Secondary School and across Canada will spend the day at the workplace of a parent, relative, friend or volunteer host.
For students, it's more than just a fun day. lt's an opportunity to:
  • Understand the importance of staying in school by seeing first-hand the skills required in today's workplace.
  • Start exploring career options in a practical way and gaining a better understanding of how many career choices are open to them.
  • Experience a day in the world of work and begin thinking about the kind of job they might aspire to.
For parents, it's an opportunity to prepare children for the future by:
  • Participating in a shared experience with their child.
  • Enriching their child's experience with career discussions before, during, and after the workplace visit.
What if it is not possible to go to work with a parent?
Parents invite their own children to join them at work for the day, but if this is not possible, there are other ways for your child to participate:
  • Ask a relative, neighbour or family friend to take your child to work.
  • Ask a parent who is taking his or her child to work if your son or daughter can join them for the day.
  • Contact local businesses and ask if they are participating in Take Our Kids to Work day. lnquire if someone within their organization would be willing to host your child, providing you make the necessary transportation arrangements.
