We are John Robson
The Keg is part of our Community!

The Parent Advisory Committee of École John Robson School is asking for your assistance to accomplish our goal of providing our students with the best tools to succeed in their education. This submission is being made for an educational purpose. We are hoping that the Keg's Thanks A Million Grant Program helps make our dreams for our school come true!

Have you ever come across someone with infectious enthusiasm and a million dollar smile? At École John Robson Community School, you will come across about 450 such people each and every day! And we'd like to make these smiles even brighter!

This is a school that has been labelled "inner city" and a school with its lion's share of "issues" by some, but we can tell you that John Robson has the most special and spectacular school group around. The school staff, parents, children and local community have truly worked hard over the years creating a unique, diverse and rich community and school environment. We may not have all the bells and whistles that some other schools do but what we do have is a lot of heart and tonnes of spirit!

The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is embarking on an ambitious goal of putting a SMART BOARD into each one of the school's classrooms. Making learning exciting and interactive is the key to capturing the attention of students these days. SMART BOARDS do exactly that -- they are transforming teaching and learning. Technology is one of the most important factors in creating tomorrow's workforce.

The SMART BOARD is computer based interactive white board system that provides a collaborative learning experience. For many educators, successful technology implementation begins with three core elements - the touch-sensitive SMART BOARD technology, SMART Notebook collaborative learning software and the SMART Exchange website. While the SMART Board interactive whiteboard serves as the focal point for interactive learning, SMART Notebook software gives teachers the tools they need to easily create and deliver interactive lessons that can meet the diverse needs our students. It also connects teachers to the extensive learning resources available on the SMART Exchange. Creating classroom environments in which students take an active part in their education is leading to children being more engaged in the topics of instruction -- which, in turn, is creating happy kids and happy teachers.

Please help support John Robson's parents, students and staff reach our goal of raising enough funds to purchase 18 SMART BOARDS, projectors and software and training to go with it. With your support we can do it!

Thank you,

École John Robson Community School P.A.C.
