ZINC FOR LIFE! Every year OAPCE Supports and promotes a Social Justice initiative for our Conference .. this year as Free the Children is one of our sponsors we will team up with them and with Teck’s Zinc & Health initiative to raise awareness about the devastating effects of zinc deficiency by asking educators, parents, and youth, to collect used batteries. Below, is a link to the Zinc & Health website below. Under the FAQ section you’ll find more information about the used battery drive:

We ask for anyone attending the Conference to bring in your used Batteries! The five parents who bring in the most used batteries will win FREE Registration to next year's Conference in Kingston! So come parents, let's show how we can come together! Bring your used batteries to the Saturday Conference and hand them in to the Madonna Catholic Secondary  School's Social Justice Committee who have already started with their campaign!
