NPSS students bake for Ghana

Students and teachers at North Peace Secondary School have been working overtime in the kitchen.

 

Over the last week, students have baked over 200 pounds of fudge and over 200 dozen cookies and butter tarts to help fundraise for a trip to Africa.

In the past, students have travelled to El Salvador to build schools. Next year two groups of students will go to Ghana in West Africa to help two orphanages.

Derrick Laychuk, a teacher at North Peace is leading the group now called Visions of Change.

One group will travel to Africa during spring break, while the other will go once school is finished for the year.

Most of the baked goods have already been pre-sold, but they hope to have some left over for the community to purchase.

If you’d like to buy some of the baked goods or donate to the cause, call North Peace Secondary School or talk with any of the students making the trip.
