You may have noticed the signs around campus urging to help the Invisible Children and wondered what this could be. This represents the level of compassion in our student body as they support a movement that will bring safety to the children of Africa.
Quarry Lane's student council has taken an active stand by supporting the Kony 2012 movement. This movement is supported by Invisible Children, an organization that has been working for nine years to end this armed conflict in Africa. The goal is to stop and disarm Joesph Kony leader of a rebel group that abducts children to be turned into soldiers and "wives" for the officers of the group.
Currently, QLS students have posted various signs outside and within our school. They have created handmade bracelets with the message "Help the Invisible Children" and "Kony 2012." These bracelets will be on sale through April 20, 2012, known as the Day of Action. On that day, students will sell tradition African food during lunchtime. All profits made from the bracelets and food sales will be donated to the Invisible Children organization.
At Quarry Lane, we are proud to foster the passion that our students show towards others. Their iniative to take action is regarded as brave, thoughful and sincere. We encourage all students to have a voice when it comes to their beliefs.
