Gordon Terrace raises $4000 for Gordon Terrace, Nepal

David and Patricia Stock visited Gordon Terrace School, Cranbrook on Friday, January9th to show their DVD presentation which demonstrates the culmination of their coordination and the fund raising efforts of students at Gordon Terrace to build a school outside of Katmandu, Nepal. 

Over four years the students here have raised over $20,000 and this sum of money has enabled the building of a Gordon Terrace namesake school in a tiny village many kilometres and cultures away.  This project has provided all the students involved with many unique learning experiences.  Dilly Bar sales, handmade bracelet sales, craft sales, the collection of Canadian tire money, penny drives have all taught many skills only learned in the real world of business. 

The students' reward has been much more than dollars however and the success of the project has motivated the students to continue supporting the little Hot Pink School on the other side of the world.  $4,000 was presented to the Stocks on this visit - the proceeds from the Christmas craft sale.

Principal Michelle Sartorel, Patricia and David Stock thank students.
