Blyth Academy Students and Staff Take Action to Support Earthquake Victims

Blyth Academy students, staff, and families have rallied in support of victims of the recent earthquakes and devastation in Türkiye and Syria. They have come together to collect essential items for donation and raised money for relief. Various campuses have collected and submitted donations to the Red Cross as well as AKUT, a voluntary, non-governmental organization involved in searching, assisting and rescuing.

At our Lawrence Park campus, students sent donations to warehouses being organized by the Consulate General for Türkiye including warm clothing, tents, mattresses, blankets, flashlights and thermal food containers. The Student Council hosted an authentic Turkish lunch and all proceeds went to the relief effort.

Blyth Academy Etobicoke hosted a week of fundraising activities including Pancake Tuesday, Pizza Friday, and “Pie Your Teacher”.

Michael Minicucci, Principal of Blyth Academy Etobicoke said, “Blyth Academy Etobicoke believes in community and making an impact on the world around us. We are a small but mighty group, and by working collectively we have the potential to make a significant impact on the communities around the globe that may need our support. Our campus recognizes the devastating impact that recent earthquakes have had on so many people in Türkiye and Syria, and we have raised more than $600 to donate towards the Canada Red Cross efforts to support families in need. Our campus has been able to come together through several fundraising events over the last couple of weeks to send their support.”

Fundraising will continue throughout Term Three. To learn more about how all Globeducate schools are contributing, please click here.
