Thank you to Delta Bingo and Gaming -


Please consider getting trained to help James Morden run BINGO. The training is one hour long at the Gale Centre (we can arrange transportation) and allows you to volunteer at BINGO. We are required to provide 2 volunteers at 1-2 BINGO sessions per month. BINGO sessions are 3 hours long at Delta Bingo (we can arrange transportation). BINGO provides our school with approximately $500 per session and pays for field trip bus costs, presentations to students in the classroom, school uniforms, and many other things that enhance student learning. We currently only have 4 regular volunteers and NEED MORE HELP! Please inquire at the office if you are interested in helping JAM with BINGO.


If you require general transportation information please go to www.nsts.ca or call Niagara Student Transportation Services at 905-346-0290.
