St. Edmund Prep has taken up the cause to bring awareness to poverty and hunger in our community. Each A-Day our students are challenged to restrict their spending for food and other non-travel expenses to $2.00 per day, the definition of moderate poverty as defined by the World Food Bank. Students will be further challenged to consider donating a portion of the money they would normally spend in a day to a charity fighting hunger and poverty in our community.
In the first semester, our students donated over $1500 to help fight hunger.
We believe that even the smallest of actions can make a real difference in the lives of so many. We, at St. Edmund Prep, will take action to help solve hunger.
Will you join us in the #HungerAwarenessChallenge ?

This past week the St. Edmund Prep Model Congress Team traveled to Washington DC to compete in Princeton Model Congress. The team which has doubled in size since its initial showing last February at Harvard consisted of seniors Shelby Lau and Amanda Mattioli, juniors Joshua Beaton, John McCarthy, Anastasia McGrath, Marissa Moran, Gerald Rehill and sophomore Jared Rios.
Together with the help the non-traveling members of the team, they showed up on Thursday the 19th ready for the challenge. Among the country’s elite students from private schools stood our delegation proud in their purple and white. The eight students assumed their roles as Representatives and Senators and fought for the bills they drafted the weeks before the competition. Bills ranging from the introduction to a new type of nuclear energy to taming the actions of China in the South China sea to amending Obamacare and reenacting postal banking, the SEP students were nothing but spectacular as they defended their bills and managed to get six of their eight passed in their individual committees.
From there the students moved on to Full House and Senate meetings there the merits of proposed bills were debated in a large group setting. The SEP team waved their placards high and voiced their pros and cons whenever given the opportunity. All eight made their voices heard by giving passionate speeches and sound advice regarding the constitutionality of the bills.
For four days, these young men and women assumed the role of policy makers and took that knowledge with them on a tour of the Capitol building provided by Charles Schumer’s office. Seeing government in action was an experience these students will never forget and will motivate them as they get ready for Harvard Model Congress in February 2016.
