EDAS is in its 15th year, and the 2018 campaign is now underway. Led by École Puntledge Park students and staff, 15 other Comox Valley schools have joined and will start filling more than 1,100 homemade care packages for the homeless and needy for Christmas. Donations can be drop off at designated locations until December 10th. We thank the many individuals in our school and throughout the community who devote their time and energy to our EDAS campaign. We are also grateful to the district Board of Education and the Senior Leadership Team for the encouragement, participation, and contribution that has helped with the project success year after year.

Families will take part in play-based activities while learning about early learning programs and services in our Comox Valley elementary schools and the community.
