 This year's Wacky Walk-a-thon raised $6,553.44!  Well done, everyone and congratulations to the winners of the class prizes and the grand prize family annual pass for the Royal BC Museum!  The money raised will go a long way to fund PAC events throughout the coming school year and to provide additional resources for each class.

Do you have a student in grade 5 at Vic West? The following is from fellow Vic West parent, Mark Crocker. Sounds like a wonderful learning experience!

NEW HOPE SCHOOLS IS BUILDING STOVES WITH GRADE FIVE KIDS AT VWES
It is hard for us to truly imagine what it would be like to cook over an open fire every day. To not have access to simple clean cooking options. But for families in Haiti it is a different story:
- Millions of people spend hours every single day to cook a meal for their kids
- Women walk for hours to find the fuel.
- People spend hours to cook a meal
- Kids get burned by the open flames
- Families breathe the smoke day after day
Mark Crocker fro New Hope Schools Society is here this week to show our grade five classes a simple stove design that is making a big difference in Haiti.

On Tuesday Feb 27, Mark will work with the students to help them understand the problem of smoke as well as participate in building a smokeless stove together. Students will participate in building a stove together.

For more information, please go to newhopeschools.com or contact Mark at 778 995 5505 (or stop him and say hi when he drops off his daughter in the morning). More info here: https://www.facebook.com/newhopeschoolssociety/
