  • Announcement from GSA PRIDE on Friday, December 1, WORLD AIDS DAY
    GSA Officers: Gabii Payano and Nazia Nazem
    What is World AIDS Day?
    World AIDS Day is held on December 1st each year all around the world and is an opportunity for people to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.
    Why is World AIDS Day important?
    Globally an estimated 34 million people have HIV AND more than 35 million people have died from the virus, making it one of the most destructive pandemics in history. Today, many scientific advances have been made in HIV treatment. There are laws to protect people living with HIV and we understand so much more about the condition. But despite this, people do not know the facts about how to protect themselves and others from HIV, and stigma and discrimination remain a reality for many people living with HIV. World AIDS Day is important as it reminds the public and Government that HIV has not gone away – there is still a vital need to raise money, increase awareness, fight prejudice and improve education.
    What can we do at PCTI?
    Last year, during our school-wide Charity Day in May, our GSA PRIDE raised well over $400 to help fight AIDS. It may not seem like a lot but we are trying to do our part. When Charity Day comes around again, please help support this worthy cause and all the others that the PCTI clubs will be sponsoring. It’s not too early to start saving…this is the season of giving. Thank you.
  • Attention all PCTI Saturday Morning Tour Guides. Tomorrow is the last scheduled tour of PCTI. Please be reminded that we will meet in the lobby by the auditorium at 9:45am. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
