The annual Hip Hood Auction was on Friday, June 2. Parents had a great night out and bid at a silent auction, enjoyed
live music, food and drink. The profits from the event were shared between Connaught and Devonshire Public Schools.

It’s was Connaught Day on Sunday, May 28, at the new Hintonburger location, 1066 Somerset Street West.
A portion of sales that day were donated to the playground renewal.

The e-waste and textile drive was very successful. The truck was overflowing! We won’t know the exact amount raised
for another couple of weeks, but we made at least $1000.

Kinderyard Outdoor Classroom Grand Opening
On October 25, 2016, Connaught Public School kicked off a fundraising campaign to raise $180,000 to renew, revitalize, and green its schoolyard.


A ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrated the first step in the schoolyard renewal: a new outdoor classroom in the kindergarten yard with enough seating for 25 children to allow teachers to take learning outside.

The new structure was built with funding contributions from the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF), and the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB).

But an outdoor classroom is only the first step. The play structure in the kindergarten yard is at the end of its 25-year life span and as the school board does not replace play structures, it will simply be removed if parent volunteers are unable to raise the funds to replace it. As well, due to encroaching development, the big yard for the children in Grades 1 to 6 has lost 80% of its tree canopy and will soon be towered over by a 13-storey apartment building..
