CBowey: Indigo Love of Reading Grant Recipient!

CBowey: Indigo Love of Reading Grant Recipient!
Posted on 06/04/2024

As a result of our passion for literacy, hard work, and some pretty amazing collaboration amongst CBowey educators, our submission to the Indigo Love of Reading Grant has been successful! Clifford Bowey is one of a handful of schools across Canada that will be receiving funding from the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation to enhance literacy supports and improve our library spaces.   

Over the next 3 years, Clifford Bowey will receive $20,000 dollars to support the Love of Reading in our community!

This funding will enable us to purchase books and resources that meet the many interests and needs of CBowey students with Developmental Disabilities: books that are age and developmentally appropriate; books that are designed for students who are blind/have low vision; books that provide tactile and sensory opportunities; books with texts that rhyme, and feature letter sounds and pictures. In short, books that appeal to and honour CBowey students as emergent readers.

Perhaps most importantly, this provides us with the funds to search out and purchase texts that represent our students' lived experiences as young people with developmental disabilities. It makes it possible for us to share stories with students that represent the rich cultural diversity of our community, stories in which they will see themselves reflected and represented.
We couldn't be more excited about these next steps in our Reading journey at Clifford Bowey!
