One might look at our school field and think that we have a brand new track. Crews spent several days repairing our school track transforming it into a newer looking facility. Some of the work done included replacing the drainage system around the track, installing a new wooden edging along the inner perimeter, and upgrading the track surface. The condition of the track has been significantly improved and it greatly enhances the opportunities for our school community and the broader community to use this facility. Please drop by for a run sometime and let us know what you think of our new and improved track.
On Monday, April 29th at 1:00pm students from Don Ross Secondary and Brackendale Elementary will be holding placards along side Government Rd. encouraging motorists to slow down. These students will be stationed near Brackendale Elementary and they invite anyone from the community to join them on their campaign to heighten traffic safety awareness for both motorists and pedestrians.
