The Annual Walkathon

06 February 2019

It's that time of year again, the annual Walkathon for DEMS and DBGS staff and students.  Both schools put on their game face and had one goal - raise as much as possible for the incredible charities that were chosen by the schools.  The walkathon's purpose is to teach students about compassion and giving to others. 

Spirits were high on Walkathon day, and the pledges flooded in through the following week.  There were fun incentives and prizes offered to various tiers of pledge amounts collected for individuals, classes and houses.  Students and staff at DEMS and DBGS are excited and proud to be contributing to such a meaningful cause and look forward to continuing the tradition in the coming years.

A big thank you goes to everyone that contributed to these causes:

Childhood Cancer charity.
