Terry Fox Totals
We would like to thank all of the students, families, supporters and staff and who took part in our school's Terry Fox fund raiser and school run this year. The Terry Fox foundation is an "organization that still embodies the values of its founder; that funds cancer research projects that are innovative and daring; that has become an important part of community-building and fellowship" and your contributions have helped.
Our school raised just over $1700 this year which will help the foundation with their research projects. Way to go everyone!
Please remember to submit your Terry Fox Run/Walk/Bike selfies to the Student Guide Course.
Thanks again to those who participated.
- Terry Fox Challenge
This year our school is excited to announce we will be taking part in the Terry Fox School Challenge. We are challenging students to get out and walk in support of Terry Fox Foundation and help raise money to support cancer research.
Over the next 15 days students can collect donations and walk on behalf of Terry or someone they have lost. On October 6th at 12 pm we would like all participating students to get outside and walk for the challenge. Take your pictures and send them into us (details posted soon).
If we raise $2500 our new Principal, Mr Roffe, will accept the challenge voted on by the student body.
- Orange Shirt Day
Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
