Leading by example
Leading by example: Thanks to $500 in fundraising by the Grade 7 Leadership Class at Ecole Phoenix, the Campbell River Hospital Foundation was able to buy a Oximeter for the matenity ward. Medical staff screen every newborn with the Oximeter to check for congenital heart defects that may not otherwise be immediately diagnosed. It is also used when staff administer oxygen to a newborn as too much oxygen can be destructive to the lung tissues. Joining the young leaders are teacher Kelsa Donald and Stacey Marsh of the hospital foundation.
