Peguis Central School, Mar. 18, 2022 - Peguis Central’s Junior Chief and Council held a fund-raiser for the people of Ukraine today. Media reports of Ukraine’s pain and suffering inflicted by the Russian army is not lost on the youth of Peguis. “It’s very sad, and I’m mad that it’s happening to innocent people, especially babies and children,” said Terri Lynn Daniles, member of the Junior Council."It’s the right thing to do to help others who are in desperate need of supplies and resources and extra cash to help them.” They sold pizza in the cafeteria eating area, took donations and handed out ribbons bearing Ukraine’s colours.
Primary, middle and senior high classrooms are also donating monies. The highest donor section will be awarded a pizza party, said teacher Karen Myran, advisor to the Junior council.
“The Junior Chief and Council came forward and expressed their concern about what is happening in another part of the world,” said Myran. “They realized that young people like them are living there, and very endangered, and they’re feeling fear. So, they wanted to do something to support them.”
The members of the Peguis Central School Junior Chief and Council are: Brandt Whiteway (Junior Chief), Terri Lynn Daniels, Kierston Sinclair, Emma Bear and Jewel Manningway.
