Jockvale Elementary School - Nepean, Ontario

Jockvale Elementary School

Adopted by: Indigo Barrhaven  

Our school library has gone through a rough couple of years. Due to staffing changes, there weren't a lot of new books being purchased, many books fell into disrepair and many have gone missing. Then the 2020 COVID shut down added several hundred dollars of books which were never returned. We have tried to contact all of our former students but many books just weren't returned. Our parent council isn't able to fundraise, we couldn't hold a Scholastic Book Fair, and our funds from the government were greatly reduced from other years. Our board has started an Equity Road Map and we are focusing on creating schools that are more representative of the ethnic diversity in our schools. We would really like to add new books to update our aging collection, but we want those books to be Own Voices books, we want to represent all ethnicities, all orientations, all genders and our Indigenous People. These funds will give our library an important upgrade that will allow our students to have access to materials that reflect their lives on the pages of our books.
