Thirteen participating EMSB schools managed to collect about 3,000 new toys – as well as some monetary donations -- for the 17th annual Christmas and Chanukah Toy Tea, which was held on December 3 at Tudor Hall, which is located on the 5th floor of Ogilvy’s department store. The toys will benefit children with AIDS and children who are being sheltered and protected from abuse, war, poverty and/or violence. This is the sixth year of the EMSB’s involvement in the Toy Tea Campaign, which is an initiative of Spiritual, Religious and Moral Education Consultant Irene Miller. The participating EMSB schools were: Dante and Honoré Mercier in St. Leonard; Dunrae Gardens and Carlyle in TMR; Royal Vale Elementary and High School in NDG; Lester B. Pearson High School and Our Lady of Pompei in Montreal North; Roslyn in Westmount; LaurenHill Academy Junior Campus and Gardenview in Ville St. Laurent; and Vincent Massey Collegiate and Nesbitt in Rosemount.
