Vavenby students enjoy Pajama Day

As it was the last day of school before the holidays more Christmas crafts were done

By Robyn Rexin

Friday, Dec. 22 was Pajama Day at Vavenby Elementary. The students brought a favorite stuffie as well.

As it was the last day of school before the holidays more Christmas crafts were done and a special movie was shown during lunch.

Some parents came in and made another hot lunch from the food that was left over from the concert’s feast. This time a Christmas stew was created. The day before the children had a meal similar to shepherd’s pie.

The school elf continuously left reminders of his visits in the way of various treats for the students. They named him Snow-globe. One girl informed me that no one ever saw Snow-globe and he couldn’t understand what people were saying or talk to them.

Police do community relations work

Some RCMP officers have been making visits to the school. One day they brought the students a gift of Tim-bits.

They also came to the school’s Christmas concert and dinner. The visits would be a way of helping the primary students see the police as friends.

Help wanted for skating rink

The outdoor skating rink is being well used. Please remember to shovel it off before leaving.

If anyone can help Kevin Sheffield with the flooding and general care of the rink, please phone him at 250-676-0078.
