Rotary sponsors ‘dollars for iPads’

Rotary Club of Aldergrove gave $4,000 for the purchase of 10 iPads for use by Special Education Teachers' Assistants at Aldergrove Secondary

In a continuing effort to support literacy initiatives and programs in the Aldergrove area schools, the Rotary Club of Aldergrove gave $4,000 to support the purchase of 10 iPads for use by the Special Education Teachers’ Assistants at Aldergrove Secondary School.

Over the last 15 years the Rotary Club has donated over $60,000 in financial support for literacy initiatives and programs in local area schools. From the early establishment of “Rec and Reading” as a summer literacy upgrade through book purchase for the school libraries and other projects, the Rotary Club’s membership has demonstrated a strong commitment to supporting good sound literacy programs in the community.

The dollars raised from the Club’s two main fundraisers, Lobsterfest (April) and Rocktoberfest (October) goes back in to the community to support such worthy programs.

In this particular case, Aldergrove Secondary resource teacher, Vanessa Ayley put together a proposal and presented it to the Rotary Club membership.

Her enthusiasm for the project was evident from the beginning and the value she explained to assisting the Special Education TAs in carrying out the job of supporting the educational programming and needs in their daily programming was clearly evident.

The Rotary Club members eagerly supported the project with the $4,000 grant, demonstrating the value in supporting the next generation of learners and reflecting the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self.”
