On August 26th, 2018, our beloved Hornby Island School burned down, and we have a lot of work to do. HIES, in support of School District 71 and the Hornby Island Community, has now opened a “School Renewal Fund” for those who wish to donate to our community’s efforts.
The monies will help cover financial gaps left after the insurance and School District apply their financial resources. Some of the monies will be used in the short-term to support educational programs and transition activities. The school is a major facility for our small community as well. The School District, HIES, and the Parent Advisory Council will collaborate to prioritize disbursements from the fund.
As HIES is a registered charity, you will receive a deductible tax receipt. To donate please click on the button below.
If you don’t have a credit card you can also send us a cheque made to Hornby Island Educational Society at 2100 Sollans Road, Hornby Island, V0R1Z0, or send us an e-transfer to Hornby Island Educational Society at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support at this challenging time – Hornby Island and the school will recover and we appreciate your financial support.
