The Student Voice Club at Rutland Elementary has been learning about the United Nations' Global Goals for sustainable development. Although they have briefly looked at all 17 of the global goals, they are currently focusing on #4: Quality Education. Club meetings in the Fall of 2019 have been spent learning about what education looks like in Canada and in other countries. Through their explorations and discussions, they know that education does not look the same for every child around the globe. On November 20th (Universal Children's Day), twenty-two club members made pledges to take a vow of silence in support of WE's 'WE Are Silent' initiative. They silenced their own voices to raise awareness for the billions of children around the world whose voices are not heard.
