Riverside Public School students learn about local, global water issues at Free the Children workshop

On Nov. 5, Riverside Public School students will participate in a workshop by Free the Children about local and global water issues. The interactive workshop, called H20 4U, will teach 20 student leaders how they can take action to conserve and protect water, and support clean water projects overseas.


“This workshop is a great opportunity for students to learn from the Free the Children team and make a positive difference in the world water crisis,” says Paul Officer, principal at Riverside. “It aligns perfectly with our school mission to develop considerate and trustworthy global citizens.”


Free the Children is an international charity and youth movement founded in 1995 by children’s rights advocate Craig Kielburger. The organization is largely youth-funded, based on the concept of children helping children.


The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Riverside Public School is located at 30 John St. North in Mississauga.
