Raise a Reader Day
Rhodes College Staff and Students took to the streets for Raise a Reader Day on September 20th, 2012. The Raise a Reader Campaign raises money to support children’s literacy. Our staff and students had to be at their street corner by 7:00 a.m. to exchange Vancouver Sun newspapers for a donation.
Since the program inception in 1997, Raise a Reader has donated more than $5.74 million dollars to non-profit literacy programs throughout the province. Staff and students reported a wonderful sense of generosity and as always, felt rewarded in so many ways
One of the important parts of Spiritual Wellness is to experience the “Acts of Service” lesson. This semester, the Spiritual Wellness class chose to “feed the hungry”. The school provided ingredients for sandwiches and the class made a variety of sandwiches and then took to the streets to deliver them. Students were to write about their experiences and insights, as well as their epiphanies. It proved to be a deeply moving experience and many students had some powerful awareness’s, including connectedness and gratitude.
“Handing out sandwiches to those in need is a truly humbling experience. The only thing different between my life and theirs is random chance. I was filled with gratitude for everything. I have a new determination to do everything I can to make the world a better place.”
Part of a happy, healthy balanced life includes gratitude for what we have, and involves finding ways to help others. At Rhodes College we regularly organize or participate in community events designed to improve our communities and our world. We attempt to “Pay it Forward” through many acts of service.
Here are some photos from our most recent event. Many students from our Spiritual Wellness Class and some of our staff participated in Anti-bullying day.
In 2006 two rural Nova Scotia boys organized a high school protest by handing out pink t-shirts to all the boys to protest a fellow student who was being bullied. This wonderful act has prompted a national anti-bullying campaign.
Rhodes Wellness College students and staff wore their pink t-shirts and spent a cold winter morning on February 29th handing out flyers to promote anti-bullying.
