The event, which was held May 4 at Centennial Park in Dollard des Ormeaux, raised almost $1,000 for the foundation which provides funding for LBPSB school initiatives beyond government funding. The foundation also supplies winter clothing for students in need, assists in the board’s Hungry Kid program and supplies equipment and ingredients for cooking classes in several alternate and life-skills programs.
As well, the foundation funds costs related to science and robotic tournaments and also funds summer camps for students with academic or affective difficulties. The foundation also manages a number of in-memoriam bursaries. For more information about the Pearson Educational Foundation, visit lbpsb.qc.ca
