Investing in the Next Generation

Student debt is a growing issue, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic when scholarships and bursaries are in short supply. Grants to small schools like Acton District High School can have a big impact on the future of students. Especially when the high price on academics isn't the only barrier to a good education. Scholarships and bursaries give students financial security which allows them to make the most of their education, and focus on studying not paying their next bill. Roughly half of undergraduates in Canada work, close to a fifth more than thirty hours a week, a daunting task in combination with heavy course work load and navigating Covid-19. One in ten students arrive at school each day without enough food to sustain them throughout the day. According to Food for Thought Halton it costs $1 to feed two students breakfast each day. In the 2020 granting year $1,500 was allocated to Acton District High School's Food for Thought program, allowing its continued operation.
