Each year, the Almadina Language Charter Academy holds a fundraiser in memory of a fellow student, named Ahmed Abbas, who passed away in 2010. Students are tasked with seeking donations from friends and family to add to their class collection. At the end of the campaign, the students from each class that raise the most money get the incredible honour of throwing a PIE at a teacher! Once lucky student also got to be Principal for a day! Extended recess, anyone?
To date, Almadina has raised over $15,000 for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation. This past month, we were featured in the Alberta Children’s Hospital “Kids Helping Kids E-Update!”
