A huge thank you to the CGS PA and the CGS Foundation for funding the new Natural Pod furniture in the Grade 1 and 2/3 classrooms.The desire to bring our classrooms more inline with the current naturalized and communal learning aesthetic has been on the top of our wishlist for a few years. The PA had an exceptional year of fundraising last year and found themselves with a surplus. The Foundation was also looking for another smaller project to invest in after the playground was completed so wishes do come true! This is a significant investment ($20,000) on the part of the parent community and the children will enjoy it for years to come. Thank you for supporting the PA and the Foundation so they, in turn, can work to fulfill their mandates to enhance the CGS experience for all of our students.
Thank you to Marie and Don for doing the research and managing the timelines of this major change in the classrooms as well. It took a considerable amount of time over the summer. We would also like to thank Mette Johansen of Mette Designs for assisting with the design and installation. The guys from Eureka Furniture Delivery and Assembly also did a wonderful, speedy job of getting the furniture together for us when it was late arriving!
