Santa’s Breakfast – A Great Success!

Parent Council is very grateful to Dorianne McKenzie and Mara James and all of the volunteers who put on a wonderful Santa’s Breakfast this past Saturday in support of the BBNC Share365 program.  We would also like to thank Toronto City Councillor Gary Crawford and TDSB Superintendent Peter Chang who supported our breakfast and for their ongoing advocacy for our school and community.  Finally, thank you to the school staff who showed up with their families, the Courcelette Band and Choir, jazz musicians James Bayford and Julien Bradley-Combs for providing live holiday music, and to Mr. Bradley and Mr. “Peach” Evans who opened the school early Saturday morning and stayed to the very end to help with clean up.  We will share our final donation amount raised from this event very soon.


There’s Santa!


The choir sounded great – Thanks Ms. Panksep


Our families enjoyed great pancakes and other yummy food items from Good Food restaurant

The gym was filled with jazzy Christmas tunes!
