VESTAL (WBNG) — Vestal High School students are showing their support for those impacted by tragedy that struck New Zealand.
A banner saying “We are with you” in both Arabic and English language was on display in the lobby of the school.
Students were stopping by to sign the banner during their lunch periods.
The idea came from freshman Sukhmani Ghotra.
She wanted to spread awareness about what happened and show support.
“I wanted to make it more aware because I talked to some of my friends about it and they didn’t really know what was going on, and it’s a huge thing that like 50 people died because of this. So I wanted to make a small difference.” said Ghotra
Students and staff will be taking a picture with the banner on Friday.
