The Mayerthorpe Students' Union/WAM , is an extra curricular group that plans activities and events to aid global projects and increase school spirit.
Our group plans events throughout the year for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Patrick's Day and Easter. We also plan dances and other school spirit activities.
WE Day is an event that many of our students have attended for the last few years in Calgary and Grande Prairie. It is a fantastic day that promotes humanitarian efforts around the globe. We have a lot of fun and enjoy making the school, community and world a great place to be!
Students' Union/WAM is open to all students, and we encourage new students to come out and join us.
Over the past few year, through the hard work of this group we have been able to do the following:
Raise $10,000 to build a school in the developing world (this was a 3 year project, which we completed in just 2 years)
Donate $2000.00 to the Fort McMurray Fire Relief Fund (the Canadian Red Cross matched our donation)
Donate $1000.00 to Free the Children to purchase goats (which provide sustainable income and food)
