W.L. McLoed Elementary

On May 30th W.L. McLeod Elementary’s Gr. 6/7 English Class visited the B.C. Legislative Assembly in Victoria.

The students from Mrs. Fraser’s class would like to extend a heart-felt thanks to everyone in the community who helped with their fundraising endeavors to make their goal of travelling to Victoria 2012 a reality.

Thanks to the community, students were able to help finance their venture through bottle drives, business donations, a spaghetti dinner and raffles.

Students enjoyed a 5 day “whirl-wind” get away —  touring as much as they possibly could in a very tight scheduling window (exploring coastal/marine life, appreciating historic contributions of different cultural groups, learning about BC’s history, shaking hands with our Premier and MLA’s and last but not least, studying the fascinating life and works of Canada’s icon artist Emily Carr.

A special thanks is extended to Chaperones Carrie Wipfli, France Haslam, Molly Harper and SD #91 Bus Driver Dave Unruh.
