Edinburgh School’s Mission: Ukraine

Edinburgh students
Montreal - Thursday, April 7, 2022

With the world aching for the people of Ukraine, Cycle 3 students from Edinburgh Elementary School in Montreal West are doing all they can to provide assistance from thousands of miles away.

As a class project, the students, led by their teachers Jean-Michel Brunet, Geneviève Hébert and Benedict Bohn, as well as student teachers Jasmine Saim-Al-Dahr and Ilanit Bendayan created a website to transform their thoughts into action.

Loaded onto the website are the personal projects and videos created by students, which demonstrate their love and support for the Ukrainian people. 

Additionally, listed throughout are also links to the school’s Mission: Ukraine Fund. Backed by the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation, all funds raised will directly support Ukrainian cancer patients who are coming to Montreal for treatment.
