Indigo Love of Reading grant
Mount Stewart Consolidated School is the recipient of a $30,000 Indigo Love of Reading Foundation Literacy Fund grant. Mount Stewart Consolidated School is one of 30 schools to receive a 2018 grant, part of the Foundation’s annual $1.5 million commitment to high-needs elementary schools across Canada. To celebrate this achievement, the local Indigo Book Store at Charlottetown gathered with staff and students at a school assembly where each student received a book of their own to keep in their classroom library. Mount Stewart Consolidated School is dedicated to fostering literacy in its students; however, due to inadequate funding for books, struggles to provide sufficient library resources. With the support from this grant, the School will be able transform their school library and increase its book collection with thousands of new books. Schools interested in applying for the 2019 Indigo Love of Reading Foundation Literacy Fund Grant can download an application at www.loveofreading.org beginning November 2018.
