The World is a Good Place

Although news reports might suggest the contrary, there is plenty of proof that the world is a good place, full of good people doing good things. Some people make life better for people who are facing cancer or poverty, others help the environment.

Take a look at what Mr. Carmichael, his students and their school have been doing to help Cops for Cancer and Tour du Rock. Like us, Mrs. Braidwood’s students have taken part in the Terry Fox Run. Read an excellent post about Terry’s life and commitment on the Ripple Effect. Division 1, our friends in Vancouver, are joining others who want to inspire and celebrate the youth movement for global change at We Day. On Ms. Clayton’s blog, you’ll find a remembrance of a boy who made a difference and won’t be forgotten.

We have “done good” here too. Recently we took part in the national Shoreline Clean-Up.

We worked in teams.

We kept a record of the garbage--look at all the cigarette butts!

A hard-working but happy team!

Garbage is gross!

Lots of garbage and recyclables

We found a lot of garbage and recyclables.

And we kept our smiles on for the Terry Fox run:

Sprinting to the finish!

I did it!


Even after all that, we had enough energy to share our advice on how to make the world a better place. We turned our messages into a video.

Blogging friends, tell us about the good done by you and others. How are you, your classmates and community working to make the world a better place? Please let us know in a comment.

We’ll tweet about it!
