Holyrood School gets poetic over Turkey Drive

The students of Holyrood School get creative with a few poems about the importance of helping those in need.

Holyrood Elementary School kids have donated more than $80,000 to the CBC Turkey Drive in the seven years the school has participated, and they hope to top the $100,000 mark this year.  Music teacher Helene Magus spearheads the campaign with lots of help from enthusiastic Grade Sixes and members of the Little Dickens Choir

This year, some of the Holyrood students have released their inner poet, penning verses on the importance of donating. Listen to a few of the kids reading out their works.

Sam Bennett, 11, "Food Bank"


Mia Filan, 11, "Feed the Homeless"


Katherine Aikema, 11, "Donate to the Edmonton Food Bank"


Haven Rice, 11, "Giving"


Edward Bennett, 6, "Food is Like a Hero"
