Bessborough is a wonderful school. One key element to its success is the effort of the superb group of teachers and parents devoted to enhancing our children’s learning environment. We are very thankful for the support of our parent community who contribute to this excellence in education in many ways: volunteering in the classroom and in school activities, assisting with homework, and providing financial support for enrichment programming, activities and events.
Financial support to the school is provided through a series of activities the School Council hosts during the year. School Council members decide annually how to invest these fundraising dollars to enrich the school learning environment.
