On Tuesday, September 27, 2011 40 schools from Trillium Lakelands District School Board were part of the 20,000 students and educators from across the province at the ACC in support of We Day 2011. 20,000 voices joined together in compassionate cheers for Free the Children Founders Marc and Craig Kielburger. 40,000 eyes were glued to motivational speaker and child soldier survivor Michel Chikwanine as he shared his compelling story of pain and struggle. 40,000 ears listened to performances from Nelly Furtado, Shawn Desman, City and Colour, Nikki Yanofsky, Down with Webster, and the Kenyan Boys Choir. Tears of inspiration flowed from thousands of students as they shouted together as one – "WE ARE THE CHANGE!"
