Ecole Marlborough Elementary students and staff are keen to make a difference in the lives of Syrian refugees. When a drum-a-thon was proposed to raise funds for the cause the entire school came on board. The school hosted a 12-hour drum-a-thon on November 25 to raise money for Syrian refugees, with groups of students taking turns on 60 African djembe drums. They are grateful for the support of the public who showed up to support them. Donations can still be made online through the Red Cross at www.redcross.ca/marlboroughrhythmsforlife LEARN MORE
