Byemoor School staged a successful Terry Fox Run on Friday, Sept. 15. An impressive $1,510 was raised by 30 students, a great achievement for a small school. Congratulations on a great job, Byemoor students and thanks to the generous sponsors.
Following the Terry Fox Run the Byemoor School held its new term Kick-off event which was Canada 150 themed. Students were divided into three teams and competed in Canadian-based activities. These included building the tallest free-standing CN Tower using balloons and masking tape, a relay carrying water in Tim Horton cups on a tray, first team to put a pair of frozen socks on a team member, a scavenger hunt to find hidden stickers of the provinces of Canada and a lacrosse throwing relay were some of the events. Students and staff were also treated to beef on a bun. Sounds like a fun way to kick-off the new school term.

A number of hunters have visited our community lately trying their luck at bagging a few ducks and geese to bolster their winter meat supply. The Endmoor area has long been popular with duck and goose hunters, largely due to the close proximity of Sullivan Lake, the Chain Lakes, Farrell Lake, Gough Lake and Shooting Lake.
