Alaina Lobreau, Mackenzie Poirier, Charity Poirier and Michaela Halls competed in several events in the Junior Girls’ division.

Grades 7 – 12 watched a moving video by MADD (Mother’s Against Drunk Driving) on Tuesday morning. This year’s presentation was called 24 Hours, the story of three friends who attended a local ‘bush party’ thinking they had planned for a safe ride home but unfortunately the evening did not turn out as planned.  Following the video the presenter talked about being proactive when you know you may be in a situation where alcohol or drugs may be involved.  He also talked about the legalities of impaired driving not only for the driver but the fact that the homeowner is responsible for anyone leaving their residence impaired. For more information on the presentation please go to their webstite at madd.ca.

The Elementary students saw the presentation Lulu Musique in the afternoon on Tuesday

The weather finally cooperated on Tuesday for the many Grades 5 – 8 students who participated in the divisional track meet at Elkhorn.

The week finished up with Tabloid Day on Thursday and the divisional Pow Wow in Virden for the elementary students.
