Northlea is committed to a variety of fundraising activities from which funds are used to support school and staff, to increase student success, and to enrich the educational experience of our children. Over the years, through the generosity of Northlea families and the community, many thousands of dollars have been raised and disbursed to the school, local charities and international projects.
A predetermined small percentage of funds raised is also committed to ongoing community projects and charities; People for Education and the Thorncliffe Breakfast Program. Money raised during the last few years has also funded School-based projects such as enhancements to the Kindergarten play area, resources for the Music department and the Phys Ed department, additional Graded Reading central resources, Smart Boards, Kobe Touch e-readers, and much more.
The largest fundraising event at Northlea is the Family Fun Night during the Winter term. It attracts both school and community families, who raise money through a range of varied activities like a silent auction, raffle baskets, class activities, business and personal sponsorships, and by selling tickets to many locally hosted social events called the Northlea Social Series.
In 2016/2017, there will be many new fundraising initiatives, but we will see the return of the parent favourites such as QSP and Acorn Cards. See the school website stg.northleaschool.ca for more information on these and more upcoming fundraising events and campaigns.
