You can donate this year in three ways:
  • Cash or cheques dropped off at the front desk (Note: Tax receipts available for donations $50+)
  • Gift Cards for groceries and other essentials dropped off at the front desk (e.g. Save-On-Foods, Superstore, Walmart, Canadian Tire)
  • Unwrapped gifts left in the Holiday Hamper donation bins near the front desk.  (Note: Please include receipts for clothing and shoes donations whenever possible.)

    Please take a little white or brown tag from the Giving Tree for gift ideas at the Dickens main or annex school - thank you! 
Thank you for all the donations received so far!  Many families in our very own community will benefit from your kindness and generosity.

Charles Dickens Book Fair – VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

We are still in need of Volunteers for WEDNESDAY, December 6 for the Dickens Book Fair! 

BOOK FAIR at the Dickens Main School - December 6 / 7 / 8

Due to the teacher shortage, Miranda, our teacher librarian at Dickens Main can only open the Library 3 days a week. The library is closed two days a week, as she was assigned to assist with prep work instead.      

It's therefore up to Dickens PARENTS & GUARDIANS to run the BOOK FAIR this December!

The Book Fair brings in much needed resources for the school library ($2,000 per fair to buy new books) so we are pulling together to run the Fair with Volunteers.

If you are able to volunteer on Wednesday, December 6 it would be MOST appreciated!

We need:
  • 4 people from 1:45pm to 4pm
  • 1 person from 4 to 6pm
  • 1 person from 4:15 to 6:15pm 

Sign up to volunteer, by emailing Christy at

PLEASE also forward this message to any Dickens Parents/Guardians who may also be able to help.

Thanks very much in advance!
