Taking what we love

My fellow Grade 7's and I agree this is outrageous.

Dear editor:

Re: current actions of the teachers’ union.

My fellow Grade 7’s and I agree this is outrageous.

The teacher’s union already has taken our after school activities. After wrecking after school activities for all of the students they actually have the nerve to take away our trips.

We the students have been fundraising for these trips to Camp Homewood and Victoria all year.

For most students these trips are a once in a lifetime experience that some families could not afford otherwise.

I know that I have been looking forward to the trip to Victoria since my older brother went three years ago.

I understand the teacher’s strike, but keep this in mind; I thought the teachers’ union actions were to help the kids.

All this action has done for us children is taking away what few things that we look forward to in the school year.

If this action is really to help us children then why are we the ones to suffer through the consequences of their actions?
