Edmonds Community School in Burnaby is a culturally rich and diverse school with more than 48 countries represented by our students and families.
Many of the 330 students attending the school have backgrounds from Sudan, Liberia, Congo, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Mexico, The Philippines and El Salvador. The school celebrates their diversity and heritages but they also contribute in a very meaningful way to the cultural life of our neighborhood, city, province and country.
The school’s immediate needs are: new winter clothing and boots, school supplies and gift certificates for food. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for the breakfast program that feeds up to 100 kids a day.
