The Grade 5 class at St. Augustine School have been working very hard on their Entrepreneurial Adventure.  In this program, students identify a cause or charity that interests them, create a company that produces a product or service, market that product or service and, finally,
donate all proceeds to the identified charity. The Grade 5 students will also have two other fundraising events before the end of June.

During the morning of Wednesday March 29th, the Grade 5 class will be hosting a bake sale in an effort to raise money to support the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada - Ottawa Chapter.  Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to nearly 25,000 children and their families – that’s three wishes each and every day, all year long!

The students were inspired to select this charity for their EA Venture when they learned of a student within our Board who is bravely battling childhood leukemia. The bake sale will feature only nut free items and will even have some gluten free and dairy free options!

We are so grateful for all contributions to this cause.  All proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Wish Foundation!

Thank you in advance for your support.
