It’s All about the Music with Sudbury Catholic Schools and Newcap Radio

For the seventh year in a row, Newcap Radio presented the Sudbury Catholic District School Board with a generous donation of over $7,500 to enhance music programming in their schools. The cheque is a result of Newcap’s commitment to supporting music programming and education in Sudbury as part of an agreement between Newcap Radio and the CRTC. Through this agreement, the station helps foster youth musicianship in the area. “We are so grateful to Newcap for their ongoing support of our music programming in our schools,” Nicole Bédard, Superintendent for the Board stated. “This extra funding helps us enhance the programming in both our elementary and secondary panels – with the purchase and repair of instruments, the funding to support music field trips and concerts, and the purchase of new music programs. We want to thank Newcap for their partnership in music advocacy – recognizing the importance of engaging students through the arts at Sudbury Catholic”. The cheque presentation took place at St. Anne Catholic Elementary School in Hanmer. Newcap Director of Programming Rick Tompkins was on hand to present the cheque to Joanne Bénard, Director of Education, and St. Anne Vice Principal and music teacher JoAnne Comisso. Much to the students’ surprise, Hot 935 Morning Hot Tub Team G-Rant and Sherry K also came out to help present the cheque. The group visited the school’s music room, and then proceeded to take over the school’s intercom to announce an early recess to the entire school – much to the principal’s dismay.

To date, Newcap has donated over $40,000 to The Sudbury Catholic Board to support its students.
