Cowichan Secondary languages teacher Vera Rowan is proud of her students.

She sent a gallery of photos, showing her Grade 10 and 11 Spanish classes making an effort to help people in Mexico City rebuild after the earthquake there. (To see them, check out www.cowichanvalleycitizen.com)

According to Rowan, the students held a bake sale, with proceeds going to the Red Cross.

“The students made $454.60 and for every dollar donated to the Red Cross before October 15th, Aviva (Insurance) will give $5. So, that translates to $2273!” x enthused. “They are a wonderful group of individuals; what great, caring young people we have in the Valley.”
