2013 Making the Change Conference - Halton District School Board 

December 10, 2013 Thank you to the Halton District School Board (HDSB)  for inviting us to be a part of the 2013 Making the Change Conference at Garth Webb Secondary School. Our morning and afternoon workshops involved students from schools in Halton. Thank you to all the students who attended and special thanks to Grade 10 student,Damia Uqaili from Craig Kielburger Secondary School. 

"Damia Uqaili couldn’t help but be inspired but what she had learned.The Grade 10 Craig Kielburger Secondary School student attended a Books with no Bounds workshop, which involved learning about an initiative started by two White Oaks Secondary School students designed to collect books for underprivileged aboriginal children in northern Ontario. An aspiring teacher, Uqaili couldn’t bear the thought of children not having a diverse collection of books. The Making A Change conference solidified for her the goal to always strive to help people.“I learned we should stand up for each other, stand strong, have hope and help one another,” Uqaili
