Access Program Poinsetta Fundrasier

Burnaby South’s Access Program is having their annual winter Poinsettia Fundraiser. Our high quality poinsettias are $13.00 and come in red, pink, and white.  They are approximately 6.5” with a decorative foil wrapper. We will also be selling 10” holiday tropical planters for $30.00, which includes four different plants. Additionally, you can purchase the 22” premium wreaths (with berries & bows) for $30.00.

Burnaby South Secondary’s Access Program is a life skill and employment preparatory program for students with special skills and needs. Our goal is to provide the means necessary to facilitate lifelong community involvement through employment, instilling a personal sense of purpose in our students. Access students have a passion for life and longing to feel valued. The program helps students develop:

– Positive social skills                                    – Functional reading and math skills

– Communication skills                                 – Familiarity with the local community

– Practical work experience skills                 – Independent living skills

We believe our students have a lot to offer in terms of their positive attitude and willingness to learn. We have staff support to facilitate this process. They attend work experience with our students, provide support and supervision as needed and help teach the skills that are necessary for each job.

Many of our students continue on to vocational skills building programs at the college level. Providing an opportunity to work with your company would give them the experience and skills they would need to enter these programs. Their long term goal is to contribute their skills in the workforce independently.

Your support in helping us raise funds towards achieving this vision would be greatly appreciated.

Order forms are due Monday, December 3rd, 2018 (11:00pm). Our students will deliver the orders to your classroom or please pick up your orders in E120 on December 17th and 18th from 9:00am to 2:30pm,  if you are not Burnaby Secondary staff. Payments are due upon order pick up/delivery.
