Morrin School may be small but they are mighty.

The school's Student Wellness Action Team (SWAT) has been in full force all year fundraising and hosting fun student events, and their hard work is paying off.

The school will be going to the annual We Day event in Edmonton on Friday, October 12.

"You earn your tickets to WE Day, so every fundraiser we did went into that. We got 50 tickets because the WE charity was surprised such a small school could do so much for a global organization," explained Morrin School Student Council President, Madeline Cuncannon

As mentioned before, WE Day tickets aren't available for purchase and must be earned by school initiatives. Morrin school did not only get 50 regular tickets as all of them will be on floor level for prime viewing of the concert and inspirational speeches.

"They are pretty hard to get. It took us, A Walk for Water, STARS fundraising, A Change for Change Drive, and the FCC Food Drive to get those tickets," continued Cuncannon.

The school has been attending WE Day for quite a few numbers of years now, but this year holds a surprise.

"In the last few years, only our SWAT team has gone to We Day. But since we got 50 tickets and our school only has 140 people, the whole Junior, and Senior High get to go this year," concluded Cuncannon.

According to the We Day website, over one million students across North America have earned their way to We Day, and over 119 million dollars have been raised towards 6,165 local and global organizations.
