Fundraisers & Donations

Colibri Snack Bags

The Grade 4 students are taking action to reduce waste at Westgate! As part of a year long inquiry, “How can I take action?”, the Grade 4s are selling Colibri reusable snack bags, straws, wet bags and masks. 

This Canadian company’s products create a great alternative to clunky plastic containers for your recess and lunchtime needs. They help us to take action by decreasing the garbage on our playground and field while reducing our carbon footprint. 

New this year! Mini wet bags, perfect for carrying your mask and mini sanitizer!

From October 7 - October 19th, Westgate School is registered on the https://colibrifundraising.com... webpage.  To purchase your items add them to your cart. When you check out, choose Westgate School and please ensure you enter your child’s name, teacher, grade and classroom as it will help Colibri to bundle your child’s order. Pay online with your credit card. Please note that all items will be shipped to the school and delivered to your child’s classroom. 

Funds raised from this campaign will help fund the new water bottle filling station. 

We thank you so much for your support with this great initiative to reduce the waste at Westgate!
