Students in Sylvan Lake got themselves a piece of a world record last week with a little reading and writing.
Across 29 countries, over 100,000 students read the book I CAN Believe in Myself by author Miriam Laundry. Then 33,695 posted comments about the book and what they personally can do to set a Guinness World Record for the largest online book discussion in a 24-hour period. The co-ordinated event took place between May 6 and 7. Grade 3 students from Sherisse Gervais’ class and Grade 6 pupils from Adam Locke’s class at École Mother Theresa in Sylvan Lake participated in the event, designed to promote positive thinking among students.
