Freedom Day!

On Tuesday, September 20th, 126 students from Centre Hastings had the opportunity to attend 'Freedom Day', a student rally in Toronto, promoted annually by the Simon Wiesenthal Centre to celebrate the rights and freedoms we possess as Canadians, and to raise awareness around human rights issues that exist in our world today.  This year, Freedom Day featured speakers L.Gen. The Hon. Romeo Dallaire; Michel Chikwanine, former child soldier; and Rick Campanelli, ET Canada Host.

Those Centurions who attended the rally represented Centre Hastings with pride - way to go Centurions!
