Fundraising

Fundraising makes an important contribution to the vitality and growth of the École Ross Road School community.

Fundraising provides our school with the financial means to acquire and/or upgrade equipment, supplies, material and programs beyond normal assistance covered by the District and Province.  The additional funds are an investment in our school to enhance programs, policies and activities.
