Students entering grade 10 in the fall may begin collecting community service bursary hours this summer. Student are credited for up to 150 hours of volunteer work. This program then provides your post secondary institution with $750 toward your tuition costs; less if you collect fewer than 150 hours.
This year marks the first year that they will move to online registration. Please visit the following site to see how to proceed.

Bursary Hours! Where can I volunteer?

The Tuna Cup Challenge is looking for servers on Saturday, September 22nd, 2018 from 6 – 9 at the Eastern Kings Community Center. Please contact Melinda MacAulay for details, 969 0359.
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.
