NEWS FROM SCHOOLS, South Peace Secondary

The Jr. Canucks and a group of Civics students raised $400.00 for the local SPCA. This included tickets for prize packs as well as a 50/50 draw at a local game. Josh Kurjata was very helpful with this event. As well, Civics students held a successful two day information/fundraising event for MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers) at SPSS. Over $450.00 was raised along with awareness of the dangers of drinking and driving. This event was a follow-up to the earlier school wide presentation we had this fall on the same topic.
