Education foundation provided money to two Sylvan schools

Two Sylvan Lake schools will benefit from funding provided by Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools Education Foundation.

Two Sylvan Lake schools will benefit from funding provided by Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools Education Foundation.

A total of $38,000 was announced for three division initiatives and sixteen school projects in late June, according to foundation president Kurt Schultz.

“We are seeing incredible ideas coming forward, from literacy initiatives, band workshops and pottery programs to faith murals, leadership retreats, health and wellness programs and much more,” he said. “These are all projects that are not funded by tax dollars that would require schools to do significant fundraising.”

École Mother Teresa Catholic School received $1,500 for development of a multi-sensory room while Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic School received $1,000 for a Clay for Kids Pottery Program.

Division wide programs for schools in Red Deer, Sylvan Lake, Rocky Mountain House, Innisfail and Olds, include $4,000 for a Grade 5 Beginner Band Day, $4,000 for We Are Precious in God’s Sight Art Centre, $800 for an FNMI (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) author visit and $1,500 for Grow Boys – Grade 5 leadership.

The Education Foundation organizes fundraising initiatives throughout the school year and held its annual fundraiser gala in May raising over $35,000.

The non-profit society was established in 2009 to enhance the mission of Catholic education and promote the advancement of education for the division’s students and alumni.
