Japanese Exchange Students

Update on the Paul Payne Letter to the Editor August 15, 2007

In his letter to the editor of August 15, Paul Payne expressed his concern on the decision to have our Japanese exchange students, Mayu Shibata and Hiroki Tanishita, leave Tumbler Ridge prior to the end of the school year.

We are pleased to report that the decision to keep the children here was made by the School District #59 School Board in a meeting on August 13th.

Sherry Berringer, School Board Trustee commented on how pleased she was with the decision, and that in SD#59, ?Kids do come first.?
