Halton Catholic Children’s Education – $10,000 (Grow grant)
School Trips for Kids Program
Poverty remains a powerful factor in whether a student succeeds in school. An estimated 900 HCDSB students in Burlington live in a lower income household. Adding to these challenges, learning opportunities outside of the classroom have costs associated with them. This program helps children and youth to succeed in school, promotes positive mental health, and inclusion opportunities. This grant provides an additional 40 students from Burlington/Halton to attend multi-day school trips that they would not otherwise have access to.
