This year, the Minesing Central PS Global Action Team elves challenged other schools to collect food, toys, hats, mittens and monetary donations. The items were donated to various organizations around Simcoe County, including local food banks, toy drives and charitable organizations, including Barrie and Area Christmas Cheer. 

This year’s participating schools included:

  • Alcona Glen ES     
  • Baxter Central PS   
  • Ernest Cumberland ES 
  • Forest Hill PS         
  • Huron Park PS         
  • Huronia Centennial ES
  • Minesing Central PS

The SCDSB is proud of the efforts and community spirit that SCDSB students and staff at schools, Learning Centres and administrative centres across Simcoe County have shown in raising funds and collecting items for those in need this holiday season.
