Should students pay to watch Team Canada game? 0
Did your kid’s school charge students to skip class and watch the biggest Canadian hockey game in years? In an emerging trend across the province, schools have started charging students a “buy-in” fee — the money typically goes to charity — to attend fun events like school football games. Kids who don’t — or can’t — pay stay in class and miss the opportunity. One London, Ont. school, A.B. Lucas secondary, charged students $5 to leave class and watch Friday’s U.S.-Canada hockey semifinal in the school. The money is going to a charity called Relay For Life.
