The Northland School Division has received a $75,000 donation from Cenovus Energy for the 2019-2020 school year.
“Cenovus continues to be instrumental in helping us deliver professional learning for our educators and operating a summer reading program,” said Dr. Nancy Spencer-Poitras, Superintendent of Schools. “We thank them for their support in helping students achieve their potential in literacy.”
The donation shows a continued commitment by Cenovus to support the Northland School Division which consists of 19 schools, five of which are located in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.
“At Cenovus we know that when our communities are strong, we are strong,” said Leanne Courchesne, Cenovus Group Lead, Community Investment. ‘’That is why we are committed to supporting young people as a part of our community investment focus area ‘Giving youth a chance.’ We understand the crucial role literacy can play in ensuring children are thriving at school and are pleased to continue our partnership with Northland School Division on this initiative.
The funds will go towards the division’s literacy Initiative, which the company has been supporting since 2014.
