Cedar Hills Elementary awarded $95,000 to foster love of reading

Cedar Hills Elementary is one of only three elementary schools in B.C. to receive an Indigo Love of Reading grant this year.

The school has been awarded $95,000 over the next three years to purchase library books and fund special literacy projects. Cedar Hills plans to renew its library collection, set up hallway libraries in different pods and purchase professional resources for teachers.

“We are extremely appreciative of this wonderful opportunity. Our students are looking forward to a library full of an assortment of new, exciting up-to-date books,” says Cedar Hills principal Catherine Brewin.

Cedar Hills is the fourth school in the Surrey School District to receive an Indigo Love of Reading grant over the past five years and one of 20 schools nation-wide to be awarded the grant this year.

The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation is a fully chartered charitable foundation whose goal is to improve literacy and opportunities for children in high-needs schools. For more information about the foundation, visit www.loveofreading.org.​
