Highlights from the Interview:

“We’re going to present you with what I consider one of the more fascinating developments in education, answering some of the real concerns that a lot of us have, not so much about the academics but about what type of children we are producing for the next generation? … Are they the type of children we’ll be proud of?”
– Rabbi Bulka, spiritual leader

“It’s just kind of like a run-away snowball. It’s very positive, uplifting and just fantastic.”
– Dave Palmer, Rotarian

“I thought this was a really great school-exiting activity for every student.”
– Leslie Mott, grade 5 teacher at North Gower Public School, OCDSB

“The eyes are because she [a student] wanted NOBODY to be a witness and be aware of all the damage drunk driving can cause.”
– Mark Cruz, grade 6 teacher

“It’s really easy to get caught up in what we can give our kids, instead of what our kids can give others.
– Leslie Mott, grade 5 teacher

“Their (kids) exposure to the world can be minimal and it’s easy to not realize how lucky they are to have what they have. Who Is NOBODY? opens their eyes to see how fortunate they are.”
-Leslie Mott, grade 5 teacher

“The 55 varying projects that these children undertook … it just blows you away what the teachers and the program and the kids strived towards and they all feel a sense of unity … and the end results are just phenomenal.”
– Dave Palmer, Rotarian
