Fundraising for new gym floor at Philemon Wright High School (PWHS)
30 January 2004

The Philemon Wright Home & School grounds committee is excited to kick off their ‘Resurface the gym floor’ project. The small gym has a 35-year-old tile floor which needs to be brought up to modern standards. This will benefit all students at PWHS, improve safety, and allow the gym to be used for regional matches. The expected cost is $56,000.

With the support of the Western Quebec School Board, the school, the PWHS Governing Board and PWHS Home & School, this project is under way. To date, $29,000 has been committed. The grounds committee would like the community’s support to raise the balance of $27,000. Buy a $20 square of the floor and your name will be added to our sponsors’ plaque. There are 1,350 squares left.

Cheques can be made out to “Philemon Wright Home & School” and dropped off at the school, or at the WQSB in Aylmer: 170 rue Principale, Gatineau J9H 6K1. Corporate sponsorship is welcomed. If you would like to make a credit card donation, or have questions or suggestions, please call Caroline Eastman at 684-0584 or Judy Chiasson at 595-1920. PWHS is the high school for the majority of English-speaking students from Aylmer, Le Plateau, Luskville and Breckenridge areas.
