From Refuge to Responsibility
- KPS hosts round table coffee hour -

Community leaders and friends of Kingsville Public School will discuss with students who and how we should respond to larger societal needs and issues at a round table coffee hour on Thursday, November 22nd beginning at 9:30 a.m.
 
The Intermediate students at KPS have been reading the book "Refugee" by Alan Gratz. It's about three teenagers experiencing life through the Holocaust, the Cuba Riots and the Syrian War. The book has generated many discussions and further research by the students into the role young people play in global issues and what communities can do to help those in need across the globe and here at home.

Among the invited guests for the round table discussions are faith leaders, immigration officers and lawyers, people from business, education, and politics.

For more information contact Principal James Cowper @ 519-733-2338.
