OECTA teachers give generously to Japanese relief fund

TORONTO, April 7 /CNW/ - The Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA) has collected $25,000 towards its Japanese relief fund. Donations from teachers across the province will be directed to Education International's EI Solidarity Fund to help the people of Japan rebuild following the earthquake and tsumani.

"Our heartfelt thoughts are with the Japanese people," says OECTA President James Ryan. "It's difficult to comprehend the devastation they are experiencing. Our donation is one small way that we can contribute to helping them rebuild their lives and their communities."

"A disaster on that scale is particularly traumatizing for children," Ryan adds, "but we are already hearing about efforts to re-open schools and convert usable buildings to classrooms so that students can start attending school again. A return to routine and being together will contribute to a sense of normalcy."

OECTA is a teachers' association that represents 45,000 professional women and men who teach all grades in publicly funded English Catholic schools in Ontario.
