Donna BurnsCongratulations to Donna Burns, our Grade 3 and English to French Immersion teacher, for receiving the 2019-2020 Excellence in Equity Award.

Donna has been volunteering for 15 years to run the Heart of the City Piano Program. She has invited numerous students to her class, where she has set up pianos or keyboards with headphones so that they can improve their skills. She also facilitates a team of volunteers from the University of Ottawa to help teach piano to students who would otherwise not have the opportunity to receive lessons. Every year, Donna prepares students for a recital and organizes a field trip so that they can attend it, creating an unforgettable experience for the students. Her passion for education has opened up horizons for many students.

Thank you Donna for the contributions you have made to our school community!
