Weddington Middle School’s NGC Team consists of students in grades 6 to 8. The students worked collectively to educate their school community and raise $684 this past year: $300 for the Mobile Toy Library in India and $384 for House of Hope in Uganda.
Working together to educate about 1000 students and staff members, the team hosted a Jean Day where students and staff paid $1 to $5 to wear jeans on a specified day, created informational posters to hang across campus, brainstormed about global issues and used the school’s broadcast to teach students and staff.
As a form of advocacy, the students created Thank You notes for staff members who donated during Jean Day.
On an International Day, the team hosted a booth inviting classes to stop by, to participate and to learn about global issues, NGC and the team.
