Fundraisers

Rockwood Public School (RPS) 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, iPad and chromebook purchases and board games for indoor recess during inclement weather. Classroom teachers also initiate fundraisers to support charities that help the less fortunate.
