Standard-Freeholder (Cornwall) - - NEWS -

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.
