On Friday, September 14th, the grade 8 students and parents took their own initiative, further to the school program, to organise a triathlon fundraiser where they canoed, cycled and hiked (from Lakeside, up Pulpit, and back again). Ms Lavine was a welcomed participant, too. Decked out in beautiful red t-shirts and complete with a ribbon cutting, these amazing students set the challenge and completed it in fine form (and with great teamwork). Dronemates was on hand to photograph the event, too.
Thank you so much to everyone who contributed to this successful (and fun) fundraiser – we raised $2500, and donated $250 to the West Kootenay EcoSociety to help support all the good work they do.
Congratulations to all and thank you parents for ensuring a safe and fun adventure for these remarkable students.
