The Waterloo District Masons selected Oak Bridge Academy as its yearly charity project. It is a long standing Masonic tradition of raising funds for the special needs, vulnerable and disadvantaged children in their community. Today they came to our school to present to us a cheque for over $13,000!
Thank you for this incredible gift and for seeing the immense value in our incredible students.

Oak Bridge Academy is thrilled to announce we are the recipients of a music therapy grant from the Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation!
This generous grant will be used to partially fund a 10-week music therapy program for the students of Oak Bridge Academy starting this October. Oak Bridge Academy is excited to partner with Emily Carruthers, a certified Music Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist and owner of KiJengle: Inclusive Music Education & Music Therapy, to provide this service. Music therapy is a research-based practice and profession in which music is used to support development, health, and well-being. At Oak Bridge Academy, this music therapy program will enrich our students' social, emotional and academic experience.
We are so grateful to the Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation for helping Oak Bridge Academy provide this amazing opportunity to our students. The Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation exists to ensure the needs of our community are met today and tomorrow. They identify needs, fund a wide range of programs and help donors make lasting contributions. To find out more about this valuable community asset, please visit www.cndfoundation.org
