Community Service Bursary

Students entering grade 11 in the fall may begin collecting community service bursary hours this summer. Student are credited for up to 100 hours of volunteer work. This program then provides your post secondary institution with $500 toward your tuition costs; less if you collect fewer than 100 hours.

1. Please ensure that you complete the registration form and fax it off BEFORE beginning your hours.
2. Once that is faxed you may begin collecting.
3. When you have completed your hours, fill out the hours form and fax that in too.
4. You may also want to see which organizations are registered.

Please see school counsellors if you have any other questions.

Bursary Hours! Where can I volunteer?

Students interested in volunteering at either the Colville Manor or the Souris Hospital are asked to see Ms MacGregor Harris and pick up an application form. Students (grade 10 -12) can use these hours toward a community service bursary or for the service component in Leadership/CEO/Wellness.

Ten Thousand Villages will be hosting a sale again this year at St Mary’s Hall October 20 – 21 st. They are currently looking for volunteers to help with setup on Friday Oct 20 starting at likely about 9 (a non school day) and take down the next day beginning at 4 pm. If there’s a senior level student who has experience running cash, they could also work some of the sale hours doing that. There is also an opportunity for a group to organize a bake sale at this event, last year our Vimy group took this opportunity to raise $ for their expenses. Students can use these hours for the community service bursary or for courses requiring volunteer hours. Please see Ms MacGregor Harris if you are interested in either of these opportunities.

Please see Ms MacGregor Harris or Ms Jackson-Deveau if you have questions and/or wish to add your name to the list.
