St. Gabriel celebrates $30 k grant and new French immersion and Pre-K programs

Montreal - Thursday, May 30, 2019

St. Gabriel Elementary School in Pointe St. Charles (600 Dublin) has been awarded a $30,000 grant from Indigo’s Love of Reading Foundation.  In addition, as a result of the exponential population growth in Griffintown, the school will be officially opening up registration for their French immersion Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten streams for the 2019-20 academic year.  

In September, students will be able to enjoy hundreds of new books as St. Gabriel will become the fourth EMSB school to win the Indigo Love of Reading grant. Coronation Elementary School in Cote des Neiges, St. Dorothy Elementary School in St. Michel and St. Monica Elementary School in N.D.G have all won in the past. 

The Love of Reading Foundation was established in 2004 by Heather Reisman, the C.E.O and Founder of Chapters/Indigo and is committed to providing literacy funding for inner-city elementary schools. Since its founding, the foundation has committed over $30 million to over 3,000 high-needs schools in Canada.
