Bayside Public School [1] received $1300 for the Instrument Rejuvenation project. The grant will be used to purchase additional instruments for the second largest school in Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board. Bayside PS has very active music and band programs.

Trenton High School [2] received two grants, one for $1000 and one for $700. The $1000 grant will support the purchase of a second sink system for the school’s Tiger Cat Café. The Café currently serves 20+ breakfasts and 60+ lunches to students each day. The additional sinks will help keep up with dishes, while maintaining a clean and efficient kitchen. The $700 grant will be used to support the ‘Tigrrrls Trust’ program. All Grade 9 girls are included in this 1-year program focused on building self esteem, preventing bullying and relational aggression, and helping girls develop good decision-making skills. The grant will be used to purchase trust/team building materials to facilitate discussions that build those skills.

The grants were recently awarded through the Rotary Club of Quinte Sunrise. Through the collective fundraising efforts of club members over the past year, seven community organizations and two international organizations were awarded with program funding totalling $15 806.
