Peel school receives $60,000 Indigo Love of Reading Foundation Literacy Grant

​Munden Park Public School is one of nine schools in Ontario to receive the Indigo Love of Reading Grant

The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation Literacy Fund Grant selected Munden Park Public School, the only Peel school, as one of 30 schools in Canada to receive the grant. Munden Park will receive $60,000 in grant money to help schools enhance their literacy programs for students. 

“This grant will enable Munden Park to empower our students through the collaborative voices of our parents and community members to create an inclusive and compassionate space for them to learn and engage in literacy”, says Principal Tripat Ajrawat. “Over the next three years, we commit to develop our learning commons area by providing our students with literacy-based opportunities to help students reach their literacy goals."

Munden Park’s literacy team has worked together over the past four years to establish a thorough proposal and video portfolio for the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation. The proposal includes an analysis of student performance in literacy, socio-economic status, EQAO results and school community information. 

The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation Literacy Fund grants funding to 30 high-needs elementary schools across Canada. This year, the foundation donated $1.5 million to schools who have demonstrated an incredible dedication to literacy.
