Big Valley School gets grant from BP Energy


The 2011 Big Valley School Grade 9 graduation ceremonies were held on June 1. The graduates were spotted around the village being photographed in all their finery as proud parents looked on. Congratulations to Logan Hermus, Allie Hiemstra, Chelsey Johnson, Morgan Lawrence, Ty Mappin, Jesse Nyuli, Aislinn Reule, Hope Skocdopole, Tim Skocdopole, and Abby Tizzard. We wish you luck in all your future endeavours.

Mr. Raugust and the Grade 7 and 8 students are very pleased to announce that Big Valley School was awarded $10,000 from BP Energy for next year’s science program! Thank you so much to BP Energy Ltd. for this generous grant, which will greatly enhance learning about energy and environment at Big Valley School.

Big Valley was all abuzz on June 4 with the arrival of Alberta country music singer Gord Bamford here in our village. Mr. Bamford and crew spent the afternoon filming part of a new music video at our own Big Valley Railway Station. Filming began with the arrival of Saturday’s tourist train and took place on the station platform and the train while the tourists visited our village.

The Big Valley 2011 Cattlemen’s Golf Tournament is scheduled for June 11 and June 12. The ladies will be playing 18 holes on Saturday, while the men will play on Sunday. A barbeque is scheduled for Saturday evening at the Agriplex beginning at 6:00 p.m. and breakfast will be served from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. on Sunday.
