Affinity Helps Out Bryant Students

Affinity Helps Out Bryant Students

DECEMBER 23, 2020 -- For the first time in decades, Judge Bryant School was unable to host their Santa Store. Having been faced with the loss of recreational activities, extracurricular opportunities, and some in-school learning, the Santa Store is another in a long series of things that have been taken away from students this year.

As a result, the Judge Bryant staff wanted to make sure their students received something for the holidays. Enter Affinity Credit Union to the rescue, who came through with a $1,500 grant. Another benefactor of kids, First Books Canada, provided boxes and boxes of books at all reading levels.

Thank You to the Co-Op Refinery

DECEMBER 23, 2020 -- Over the past 25 years, the Co-Op Refinery Complex (CRC) has been a Partner in Education with McDermid Community School. This long-standing partnership has led to many benefits for the students, staff and community of McDermid.

In recent years, CRC employees have been readers with McDermid students, volunteered at the school’s annual Christmas lunch, financially supported special events, collected donations of clothing and gifts, and sent countless school supplies. However, with COVID restrictions in place this year, the partners have had to consider new approaches.

Campbell Business Pivot

Campbell Business Pivot

DECEMBER 18, 2020 -- Business students at Campbell Collegiate decided they wanted to keep the Campbell Business Club going for the 2020-21 school year so they met virtually throughout the fall to find a pivot idea.

The solution that executive club members identified is a digital magazine! This magazine is found both on Instagram and a website to showcase both Campbell student-run businesses and local Regina businesses. So far, club members have created a website, written scripts, filmed videos, contacted local businesses and created a solid following on social media. It is 100% their ideas, their initiative and their passion for business!
