The Victoria Cool Aid Society is $5,000 richer thanks to the work and passion of Oak Bay High students. Through the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative - a program of the non-profit Toskan Casale Foundation - teams of Grade 11 students identify and research a social issue in the community, then analyze local charities that address those issues before visiting that charity and creating a multi-media presentation to champion the cause to their classes. "Together this year, our Grade 11 students have made connections with 32 non-profit charities in Greater Victoria," said principal Randi Falls. Today (Feb. 9) the top three teams presented their projects for a panel of judges. The team of Annika Hall, Leah Zack, Shaemus Swets and Wonton Zhou won the day for the Victoria Cool Aid Society.
