|Visitors to the Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre on
December 8 and 9 were in for a real treat as School Council members from
ECOLE PUBLIQUE DE LA DECOUVERTE were on hand selling delicious baking
goods. The bake sale was organized as part of an ongoing fund-raising
program to help pay for the playground equipment for the new school in Val
Shown in the photo from the left are three of the members of the School
Council: Carole Rochette, Present of the Parent Council; Suzanne Soulliere,
Coordinator of the Bake Sale and Custodian of the school; and Bernadette
Mrochek-Dennie, Council member.
Besides the bake sale, the group is planning a huge Family Night on
March 29, 2007 as one of their major fund-raisers. They held a silent
auction in October that also went over well.
There are about 150 students from JK to Grade 6 attending the new
facility which is located on Main Street East in Val Caron.
The School Council meets on the 2nd Monday of every month to discuss
fund-raising projects, plan events and deal with other matters of interest
to the parents and the staff. Meetings are open to the public.
