Christine M Fielding Endowment Fund
Christine Fielding was a dedicated and much loved grade three teacher at Banff Trail School who taught her students to treat each other with empathy and respect. Modeling this in her own teaching, she was a champion for all of her students, and always took the extra steps to help those most in need. Christine was particularly motivated by what she often said was the most important task of a teacher, to protect students’ love of learning, at which she succeeded admirably for almost 30 years.
In memory of her enthusiasm for, and commitment to, all of her students, Christine’s family and community have established this Fund to assist students at Banff Trail School who need tutoring or psychology supports in a timely manner and who may not otherwise be able to obtain these services due to family financial hardship.
