Terry Fox Run

This year we have set a school goal of $500. Please help us to continue Terry's legacy by donating to our school fundraising page at https://schools.terryfox.ca/11072


Our event will begin at 9:00 am with a warm-up. The run/walk will follow the same course as in previous years. There are two routes, both of which are on and off school grounds. The first route is a 1 km walk through the village, and the second is a 4.5 km run or walk up the 7th Line Rd and back.


We encourage and welcome parents and other family/community members to participate and help supervise students along the way by walking, jogging or by cheering as individuals complete their run.

We are so happy to be able to welcome families to come meet the staff, visit classrooms and tour our lovely little school!

Parent Council

School Councils are important partners in education. School Councils provide a forum through which parents and other members of school communities can contribute to improving student achievement and well-being and enhance the accountability of the education system.

Our School Council meets approximately four times a year, focusing on information sharing and discussion, and sometimes, how to improve student opportunities through fundraising. At each meeting, school administration provides an update on school-related activities and council members may identify topics of interest for presentation/discussion at future meetings or extra special interest sessions.


Please see below the call for nominations for the 2022-23 school year. Elections will take place at the first Council meeting - date to be determined.
