Leadership Students Make RHHS Special

The Leadership students in Richmond Hill High School gathered in the gymnasium during a school event when to set up the gym and serve dinner to parents and students in attendance. The leaders are supervised by Coordinator of Student Affairs Janika Doobay and act as the volunteer arm of the school. They organize all the special events that make the school social life so special. The leaders also organize three blood drives a year, pep rallies, a Breast Cancer Walk and a talent show to name a few activities. They feel that their job is to encourage school spirit and make the high school experience memorable.
