Thank you to everyone who came to the cake auction on Fri., Feb. 24, during Secondary lunch. It was a huge success as Grade 12 students raised over $1,000 in total to put towards their Prom tickets. This event could not have happened without the parents, staff and students who bid and bought item, and without the Grade 12 students who brought in their cakes and pies. A big thank you to our auctioneer Brandon Scheepers for doing a great job!
