- Terry Fox Fundraising Update
So far, we have raised $265.00. This is a great start to our Terry Fox Challenge, however, we are a long way short of our target. Mr. Roffe is feeling pretty comfortable and doesn't feel he has a lot to fear. He is not warming up his vocal repertoire!
- 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.
