Toonie Tuesday

Together, our students, teachers, Principals, TVDSB support staff, TVEF Board members, Trustees and community businesses are raising funds for Toonie Tuesday 2020!

 

2019 was a huge success, with more than $44,000 coming from TVDSB schools, $2,600+ from local businesses, and nearly $3,000 from individuals! Our grand total for 2019? $51,550! THANK YOU!

 

In its short history, The Caring Fund has changed lives in our communities. It has provided toiletries and clothing when a student's possessions were destroyed in a house fire, purchased winter boots for children in an impoverished family and delivered food when cancer ravaged a local family's stability and income. These are our kids and our families, and sadly there are many more examples we could give.

 

The Toonie Tuesday campaign adds resources to the Caring Fund to meet student needs as they arise across Thames Valley. Every dollar we raised is directed back into our own school communities.

 

Together we can make a difference for our students! Questions about Toonie Tuesday? Reach out to our Events Coordinator and Development Assistant, Stephanie Winterton.

Lawson Literary Awards

Lawson Teacher Information Package

Application Deadline 2020: March 25, 2020

 

Colonel Tom Lawson hoped to generate a feeling of national pride in senior public school students by encouraging them to learn and write about the accomplishments of significant Canadians. In 1978, the Lawson Literary Awards were born named in honour of his father, the Honorable Ray Lawson, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario from 1946 - 1952.

 

The Lawson Literary Awards program is designed to encourage grades 7 and 8 students to share their personal perspectives on Canadian issues of interest and importance to them. Each year, a panel of judges adjudicate submissions and a Lawson Literary award is presented to several recipients.
