L.A. Matheson Secondary Grade 12 students

Surrey teens grant fellow student’s wish

Grade 12 English class at L.A. Matheson Secondary give younger student Canucks tickets.

He’s an avid hockey fan.

So when Niqo, a Grade 8 student at L.A. Matheson Secondary, received a pre-Christmas gift from a class of older students this week, he was pretty much floored.

Thanks to teacher Ami Kambo’s Grade 12 English class, Niqo, his sister and parents will all be attending Monday’s Canucks game against the Minnesota Wild. And Niqo will be wearing his new blue and green jersey, too.

A special needs student at the Surrey high school, Niqo picks up the paper recycling from the Grade 12 students’ class every week. The students took a liking to their younger schoolmate and his mature and gentle personality and decided they wanted to make one of his wishes come true.

They all pitched in to buy the hockey tickets and jersey and presented them Wednesday to a surprised Niqo.
