Vavenby Primary School has eight students this year: one Grade 3 student, three Grade 1 students, and four Kindergarten students.

The Grade 1 – 3 children are glad to be back and the Kindergarten students are excited to be in school. They all had a good summer and are now looking forward to going on field trips such as going to the salmon lookout.

The teacher is Mrs. Boyes, principal is Mr. Bowden, and the new vice-principal is Mrs. Nelson.

The Vavenby Parents’ Advisory Committee  (PAC) supports the school financially. Last year it raised funds through a raffle and a bulb sale. The PAC is raising funds for a new playground and field trip transportation.

Cribs and darts starting soon

This year’s crib and darts are about to begin at Vavenby community hall. The first crib night will be on Tuesday, Oct. 2 and the first darts night will be on Thursday, Oct. 4. Both will start at 7 p.m. Everybody will be welcome. You do not have to be an expert. Come out for the fun and social time.
