SIDNEY — Representatives from the Community Arts Council of the Saanich Peninsula (CACSP) attended School District 63’s (Saanich) first board meeting of 2015 to present this year’s Arts in the Schools grant.

Through dedicated fundraisers, the CACSP is, for the second year running, able to grant $10,000.

The Saanich school Board of Trustees was gracious in receipt of the grant; one Board member expressed his appreciation as a parent of students within the District and another Board member related how his school has received $900 of these grant monies to provide additional arts experiences in his school this year.

For the CACSP, it is gratifying to know these funds are making a direct impact on the quality of arts education for students in the district.
