Warriors Helping Warriors
We are beyond excited to announce that Westminster Junior High School was chosen as one of four schools in Edmonton to participate in the Edmonton Oilers' Hockey Helps Kids Charity Cup Challenge 2019 - 2020. Hockey Helps Kids is program founded by Chloe and Harrison Katz to encourage junior high school students to think of creative and innovative ways to give back to the community. Our Westminster Warriors have teamed up with Edmonton Oiler #25 Darnell Nurse and Little Warriors, a local charity committed to the awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse. Our Hockey Helps Kids Student Committee developed a 2 minute video to promote Little Warriors and drive votes and awareness to win $25 000 for this awesome organization.
This month, our Warriors have been challenged to stretch their Communicator profile. Westmin' Warriors are hard at work spreading the word about Little Warriors' work which is focused on the awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse. All of our Warriors have been getting out the message to vote for #25 TEAM NURSE at hockeyhelpskids.come/vote so we can win $25000 for Little Warriors. Through the Hockey Helps Kids campaign, our students have also seen real-world models for how to use the power of social media communication for the good.
During the year, all Westminster Warriors are reflecting on their personal development of the Learner Profile traits and on their growth in Approaches to Learning using a bi-weekly Reflective Journal. Students are engaging in self and peer evaluation protocols for many projects and using reflective thinking during the Design Cycle.
We are proud to have a school culture rooted in community were we deliver an atmosphere and experience that is safe, caring, studious, challenging, fun, and exciting. Our students are guided by the 8 principles of a Westmin’ Warrior: resilient and respectful; inclusive and integrous; committed and compassionate; honest and just.
We look forward to meeting you at our Open House on Thursday, March 12th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. You can follow us on Twitter @Westminsterjh and on Instagram @westminsterwarriorsjh. We love sharing out the great things are students do!
