SCDSB Staff, Students and School Communities Step Up for Hurricane Katrina Relief

September 14, 2005 - A number of SCDSB schools have organized relief efforts for the victims of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Students, staff and entire school communities have drawn on their living faith to make a difference in the lives of others.

  • St. Joseph School in Killarney has raised $900.00 for the Katrina relief
    fund. The school held a spaghetti lunch in order to support the victims of
    the hurricane. All members of the community were invited. Fun was had by all!
    Thank you to the staff and parents of St. Joseph School, The Killarney Bay
    Inn, The Killarney Mountain Lodge and Gateway Marina for their hard work and
    commitment to this cause. St. Bonaventure Church will collect the money and
    forward all funds to the Red Cross.

  • St. Charles College will be doing mission collections during the month
    of September to help with the Katrina disaster. Early totals have already
    hit the $450.00 mark.

  • St. Francis student council will be organizing a basket raffle in October.

  • Pius XII School recently hosted 'Cool to be Kind' dynamo Errol Lee, and
    will donate some of the proceeds to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

  • Bishop Alexander Carter CSS will be collecting a loonie or twonie from
    students, and teachers have promised to match the amount.

  • Immaculate Conception will be holding a loonie collection over 2 weeks
    and donating the profits from the next pizza day.

  • Marymount Academy will donate proceeds from a concert featuring one of
    the school’s bands.

  • St. Theresa has solicited monetary donations from school families.

  • The Provincial government has stepped up as well. Children whose families
    have come to Ontario will immediately be welcomed into the province's publicly
    funded schools at no cost, Minister of Education Gerard Kennedy recently announced.
    "We are opening up our school doors to help meet the immediate needs
    of these children and their families," said Kennedy. "By welcoming
    these students and ensuring that they can attend school at no cost, Ontario's
    publicly funded schools are doing their small part to help children whose
    lives have been completely disrupted just as the school year was beginning."
