SafeGrad Event Benefits Community

View Photos

Grade 12 students from Belmont Secondary School in Langford marked graduation ceremonies by giving back to their community. The efforts, part of Belmont's SafeGrad celebrations, involved planting trees under the supervision of Langford's Parks staff along the entrance way to Langford at the Leigh Road Interchange to help beautification in the area.

The work, made possible by a donation from the City of Langford, took place on Monday, May 5 at the Leigh Road Interchange. The students, all members of the Belmont Bulldogs football team, planted 24 Windmill Palm trees, which will add a lasting legacy for future generations to enjoy.

Belmont Secondary School Principal Ray Miller said everyone involved in the project “had a blast.” Miller said the SafeGrad prom event is increasing in popularity each year, with more than 400 students, roughly half of this year's graduating class, involved in this year's events. “If it wasn't for the City of Langford and their generosity, we would not be able to fund parts of this event,” Miller added in a letter of appreciation to the City.
