As parents of Bayview students, we are deeply involved in the creation of the "new Bayview".
Along with advising the School Board on the best way to serve both students and the community at large, we are committed to raising funds to make sure the new building meets our needs.
When a new school is replaced due to seismic upgrades, the government agencies build the replacement. But they do not fund the playground, the field, or many of the interior elements of the school. Everything from furniture to technology must be funded by the public. An example - the plan for the new Bayview is to have a field made of crushed, packed gravel. We already know from other schools this leads to lots of scrapes, cuts and other injuries. So we are looking at ways to have a better playground and field surface. And that's just one of many things on our list.
We need parents, alumni, neighbours, and friends to help us. The amount of money we need to raise is $250,000. Every dollar helps. Please donate by clicking on the button below, or contacting us. Every donation over $20 will receive a tax receipt. Every donation over $5000 will be acknowledged permanently on a donor wall at the school.
Thanks for your interest and in advance for your generosity.
