Christmas and Chanukah Toy Tea

TTwelve participating EMSB schools managed to collect about 2,000 new toys for the 18th annual Christmas and Chanukah Toy Tea, which was held on December 2 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. The participating EMSB schools were: Honoré Mercier in St. Leonard; Dunrae Gardens and Carlyle in TMR; Royal Vale School in NDG; Lester B. Pearson High School in Montreal North; Roslyn in Westmount; LaurenHill Academy (Junior and Senior Campus), Parkdale and Gardenview schools in Ville St. Laurent; John F. Kennedy High School in St. Michel; and Nesbitt in Rosemount. Representatives from each school attended the event to drop off their donated toys and receive special certificates of participation. Attendees were also treated to performances by the Roslyn and Gardenview choirs.
