The school raised $800 for the Sooke Food Bank on Twoonie Tuesday, representing $2 for each student.

As principal, Zoe has proclaimed a party, an extra recess and will be ensuring all students get out of the school for the annual fire drill. She also made the school announcements on Friday, June 21.

Principal Laurie Szadowski said it was easy for the students and staff to get on board a project like this. Part of the school’s mission statement is “Neighbours Working Together.”
