On November 12th the JMS class travelled to Toronto to the WE Schools Global Learning Centre to participate in a program on the power of words to end Cyberbullying.

Part of a week-long Anti-bullying event, the students participated in programming with other schools from Toronto and the surrounding area.

They listened to a special performance by Vancouver-based rapper SonReal, participated in a dance-off, and were interviewed on their thoughts to end bullying by members of the WE School team as well as the founder of WE, Craig Kielburger.
