da Vinci Public School Fun Raiser 2015


A fabulous da Vinci Public School Fun Raiser was held at Westney on Tuesday, December 8. The teachers helped prepare and present the food to the large groups of students and parents who attended. Together we raised $600, which will be put to good use on school initiatives.

McDonald’s Ajax was so proud to assist with this incredibly successful fundraiser and we appreciate the participation of everyone from the Ajax community who helped in this event.

Bolton C. Falby School Fundraiser

Bolton C. Falby School Fundraiser was held at Bayly on Monday, November 9th. The teachers were the “pupils” as they helped prepare and present the food.
