For Immediate Release
Timmins – The Conseil scolaire public du Nord-Est de l’Ontario (CSPNE) is pleased to receive a generous donation from Glencore Kidd Division. A $20,000 contribution will allow Timmins-area French-public schools to provide more technology tools to students.
According to Yves Laliberté, CSPNE Associate Director of Education, Glencore's generosity supports the school board's efforts to ensure the success of all its students. "In times of pandemic, the CSPNE school community has had to be resourceful and financially sound in order to provide every student with the technological tools to facilitate distance learning. The $20,000 donation facilitates the acquisition of available laptops, thereby increasing students' active participation in learning in the digital age. »
Community and corporate ties are important to the CSPNE. Glencore Kidd Division's commitment is highly valued and certainly vital in fulfilling the CSPNE's mission to educating responsible citizens.
In accordance with universal values, the CSPNE covers an area of 46,453 km2 and provides the communities of Timmins, Iroquois Falls, Kapuskasing, Hearst, Temiskaming Shores, Sturgeon Falls, North Bay and Parry Sound with quality French-language education. Close to 2,200 northeastern Ontario students have chosen French-language public schools.
