Statement by Minister Natalie Jameson on the 2024 Easter Seals school tour

2024 Easter Seals Ambassador Lucie Gallant

Natalie Jameson, Minister of Education and Early Years issued the following statement on the success of the 2024 Easter Seals Tour: 

“Heartfelt congratulations to Easter Seals PEI, their 2024 Ambassador Lucie Gallant, Lucie’s family, and the 66 Island schools who collectively raised an impressive $47,735.

This year’s Easter Seals Tour showcased the remarkable generosity and dedication of our island’s students, teachers, and school staff.

There was a challenge presented this year as an incentive: the school that raised the most funds per student would be rewarded with a school-wide pizza party. I’m thrilled to announce that Amherst Cove Consolidated emerged victorious!

Joining Lucie on the School Tour was an absolute delight. Her infectious positivity and empowering message left a lasting impression on everyone she encountered. Her motto, 'With a positive mind, you can do extraordinary things,' serves as a powerful reminder for all of us, to embrace each day with optimism and kindness.

“Let’s continue to spread Lucie’s inspiring message throughout our Island community, uplifting each other and making a positive difference wherever we go.”
