Congratulations to the 2018 Play Your Part Challenge Winners
June 05, 2018
The Play Your Part Challenge is Right To Play’s national school fundraising initiative. It empowers students to embrace their inner leader and become a collective force for change at home and around the world. And it’s all thanks to passionate, motivated and globally minded students like the ones at Irma Coulson PS and Iroquois Junior PS!
This year, the Play Your Part Challenge took place from September to May, giving students the opportunity to create exciting, meaningful projects that they can lead to fundraise for Right To Play all year long. It’s not only a chance for students to be creative and use their leadership skills to achieve a shared goal, it’s also an opportunity for them to exercise global citizenship and play their part in making the world a better place for themselves and their peers.
Then from April 30th to May 4th, each school participates in Challenge Week – a celebration of their hard work! All schools that participate in Challenge Week are entered into a draw to win a special visit from Right To Play Athlete Ambassadors. This year’s special ambassadors were Zach Hyman and Rosie MacLennan.
Zach Hyman, NHL Player, published children’s book author, and Right To Play Athlete Ambassador, joined the students of Irma Coulson PS for an exciting afternoon of fun and games to celebrate their shared passion for global citizenship and play-based learning.
Rosie MacLennan, 2-time Olympic gold medalist for trampoline and dedicated Right To Play Athlete Ambassador, visited Iroquois Junior PS for a games-filled day of fun, back flips, and celebration of their students' leadership and global impact.
Thank you Irma Coulson PS, Iroquois Junior PS, and all other Challenge 2018 schools for supporting the power of play!
