We want your brains…

We want your brains!…
…because we’re hungry for ideas.
There are a number of funding grants available to the school that require an articulated idea. We know our parent community contains a wide variety of talents, skill-sets and passions.

One of the key things we, as council, would like to identify is a talent pool that could be drawn upon to work on projects.
For example, Livegreen offers grants to schools to build green/eco-roofs – see their website for more info.

Do we have any architects, engineers, urban planners or designers in the house that could help draft a proposal? Or do you have any other ideas that you would like to see implemented in school, say those that involve one of these D.R.E.A.M.S (Drama, Recreation, Extra-Curricular, Arts, Music, Sports)?

The group S’Cool Life Fund – offers grants for programs that bring something lasting to the school that can be used year after year and engage the student body.

These two grants are only a sample of the type of funding that we can apply for, there are many more programs out there waiting for the right combination of idea, drive and commitment to bring to fruition.

Please send us your ideas or tell us about your skills by contacting Matthew Hall at ideas@roden.ca or through your child’s Class Rep or by contacting any of the other fine members of the Roden School Council.

We look forward to hearing your ideas.
