South Dundas wins
TORONTO – The Township of South Dundas has been recognized for its role in a partnership that benefits students at Seaway District High School.
South Dundas won the PublicPrivate Partnership Award for municipalities with populations between 10,000 and 50,000 at the Economic Development Council of Ontario’s Feb. 7 awards gala. It’s the first time the municipality has received an EDCO award in any category.
The township was a partner with the Upper Canada District
School Board, Ross Video in Ingleside and Code Heroes in the purchase of laptops and other equipment in the fall of 2017. The equipment allows a communications high-skills major to be run at SDHS, along with community level lessons in coding and tech skills for elementary school students.
The partnership arose out of the township’s commitments to support local elementary schools and SDHS during a school-closure review that ended in March of 2017.
