At the Botha School, they have had a busy two months since this school year started. Grades 1-4 will be going on a field trip this Friday. The students also had a great Terry Fox Run, and thanks to everyone, they were able to raise $1523.53, best support in years. Thanks also to the student council for supplying the juice and to Mrs. Kobi for baking an enormous amount of cookies for the runners. Everything and everyone was greatly appreciated.
