Cobden District Public School (CDPS) students participate in many fundraisers that support our programs, trips and resources for students. In the past, proceeds have gone towards the Grade 5 swim program, class trips, technology purchases and board games for indoor recess during inclement weather. Classroom teachers also initiate fundraisers to support charities that help the less fortunate.

Terry Fox Run

Our students participate as a school in the annual Terry Fox Run held in September each year. In addition to the physical benefits, our students raised funds to support the Terry Fox Foundation for cancer research.

Cobden Food Bank

For Thanksgiving and Christmas, students collected and donated boxed food items, juice, and canned meats for the Cobden food bank.
