To honour the memory of Bob Wilson, a former staff member of the TCDSB, The Angel Foundation for Learning is pleased to announce three arts-related initiatives. Bob was an avid supporter of the Arts, encouraging both students and staff to be actively involved in the performing arts.
Thanks to a generous bequest on Bob’s part, The Angel Foundation for Learning has undertaken three initiatives that will honour Bob’s memory and provide TCDSB students, annual opportunities to be actively involved in the Arts.
This enrichment program:
– Fosters a love of the Arts
– Promotes excellence in the Arts
– Provides an opportunity for students to enjoy the Arts and develop artistically
– Enhances personal and spiritual growth through the Arts
– Develops a sense of community through participation in live performances
