Message from the President of the
2nd major fundraising campaign committee
Maurice Berlinguette

I have had a very rewarding 34 year career at Peter Hall School, a special needs school for students with an intellectual disability.

My first post was as a teacher in 1975 and I was a campus director from 1992 to 2009. In 2004, I became a member of the Peter Hall School Foundation board of directors and since then I have been involved in all of the Foundation’s projects.

Over my 34 years I have interacted with thousands of students and hundreds of dedicated educational professionals in the area of intellectual disabilities. I can also easily state that Peter Hall is a large family composed of volunteers and financial supporters that remain involved in the school and foundation year after year.

Today we are concentrating all of our efforts on our Second Major Fundraising Campaign. During our first campaign, we had a financial goal of one million dollars and we easily surpassed it. Now our objective for this campaign is 2.5 million dollars that will permit us to expand the Côte-Vertu Secondary Campus, to develop certain areas of the Ouimet Primary Campus, and to offer up-to-date educational programs to our students.

To accomplish this, we need you, we need your support and we need your generosity.

Maurice Berlinguette - Vice-President of the Peter Hall School Foundation.
