As community members watched the long-awaited development of the school site with anticipation, it was soon recognized that there would not be a comprehensive park site developed under the public-private partnership established by the Government of Alberta. As no Community League or other not-for-profit organization existed for the area, many community members began to raise questions about how they could come together to begin to build a safe, welcoming place for our children to play and our community members to gather once the school was completed.
The Bessie Nichols School Fundraising Society was created to facilitate and raise money for the construction of a safe, fun, and long-lasting playground for the school, our children, and the neighbours to attend. As we grow, we will also provide other funds to support the education and extra-curricular activities offered at Bessie Nichols School.
The Bessie Nichols School Fundraising Society is planning to raise an estimated amount of $100,000 this year on Fund-raising campaigns. It will cost our organization an estimate of $10,000 to raise this. The money raised will be going to build a playground and will also support the education of the students at Bessie Nichols Schools by providing books, equipment or other educational aids. For further information, please contact Michele Evans at 780-483-8680. Our address is 189 Hemmingway Road, Edmonton AB T6M 2Z7 and we are incorporated in Edmonton Alberta.
