Student & Family Affordability Fund
In August 2022, the Ministry of Education and Child Care announced a one-time grant to BC schools for the purpose of making life more affordable for families who are facing financial challenges. Veritas School received a grant of $19 674, which is intended to support BC students and families affected by recent inflation and cost of living challenges. This fund can be used for school supplies (such as ink cartridges for home printers, band instrument rentals, etc.), field trips, extra-curricular events, bus and transit, Hot Lunch, grocery cards, and winter clothing purchases. If you have a need not listed here, please contact Tamara Berg to see if your need qualifies under this grant.
Veritas School parents and caregivers can make a request for financial support by completing a Student & Family Affordability Fund form. The form is available in the Veritas School office or can be downloaded HERE. Completed forms must be submitted to Tamara Berg (Principal), where they will be reviewed by Mrs. Berg and a representative of Veritas School Council. Funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
If you have any questions or concerns about the Student & Family Affordability Fund please contact Tamara Berg at email@example.com or 250-635-3035.
Please note that grant funds may not be used for school tuition fees. If you require tuition assistance, please contact Tamara Berg for the appropriate form. All Tuition Assistance Forms are reviewed by Veritas School Council.
