Friends of Port Perry Mini-Putt FUNdraising Tournament

SCUGOG: Good Shepherd Catholic School has collaborated with the local businesses of Port Perry and the surrounding neighbours to host a Mini Putt Tournament FUNdraising event on Saturday, May 6th at Sandbaggerz Driving Range and Mini Putt, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The fundraising event is aimed at raising funds for new technology for the Good Shepherd students and to bring the community together for a fun-filled day.


The students need a wide range of resources and academic skills to thrive in a constantly evolving world of technology to assist with learning actual digital skills, thinking creatively, as well as communicate effectively with their peers and their educators.

There are significant ways Chromebooks and tablets are utilized in the school setting:

Computers provides a student the ability to learn how to navigate information digitally for research. Students are highly encouraged to use current and validated information when completing projects and presentations.

Computers are also used for knowledge assessment. Senior and intermediate students may complete tests online and use applications to enhance their presentations. Primary students are encouraged to use software applications such as Raz Kids to build their reading skills.

Learning Management Systems are used for communication and projects. Senior and intermediate students are encouraged to check school and teacher updates and submit assignments through Edsby an application used for student and teacher communication.

As a member of the Port Perry community, Good Shepherd Catholic School believes in the relationships it makes between the people, businesses, and other schools that shape the foundation for a community to thrive. Thus, translating into the successes of the children within the community and provide them with the resources to adapt to a constantly changing environment. In addition, the event provides an opportunity for the community to join in on the fun and for participating local businesses to network and showcase their companies.

The vision of this event is to ensure that the students have the current tools they need to be successful inside and outside of the classroom and engage the larger community in partnership to not only support the students to flourish academically, but also bring the Port Perry community and its surrounding neighbours together as one community.
