Westdale 4 Syria: WSS Trivia Night


The students of Westdale Secondary School (WSS) are inviting you to a night of fun, celebrity video questions, entertainment, and cool prizes!

On Thursday, February 11th, the high schoolers are putting on a Trivia Night in support of Syrian refugee families and children. Their goal is to raise enough money to help ease the transition for new refugee families to the city and schools in the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board.

All funds raised will be going towards Wesley Urban Ministries to help with basic living costs and to ensure that new students aren’t left out on school trips, athletics, and other extra-curricular activities.

Quiz Masters Jeff Mahoney and Anne Bokma will be MCing this exciting evening, and a number of local celebrities will be posing video trivia questions to the audience.

There will also be a silent auction with donations from the Arkells, the Ti-Cats, and several local businesses.

Ingie Metwally sat down with a few students from WSS – Gachi, Sebastian, and Alex – on Morningfile to chat about the event and why the think this is an important cause to support. You can listen to the full interview below.

If you’re already sold on the initiative, you can purchase your tickets for $20 each at the Global Village Market in Westdale, email or, or tweet at @westdale4syria.
