Wild and Wacky Walkathon 2015- a Wildly Successful Event!

On behalf of the Vic West PAC, thank you, thank you, thank you! The enthusiasm, dedication and energy that staff, students, parents and volunteers brought to make the first annual Wild and Wacky Walkathon a success has truly touched and inspired us. You are all amazing and are the heart and soul of our little school. 

Another great big thank you to the sponsors of this event, who helped us to make it possible: The  Spiral Cafe (an extra shout out to Mike, Joy and Phil for playing along the route), the Esquimalt Rec Centre, Esquimalt High School, Hothouse Pizza Vic West, Sunset Lodge, Boys and Girls Club Vic West, Rachel and Tori for facepainting and Darryl for being our extra special judge of the wackiest classroom!

This year, Ms Carrico's grade three class raised the most money, over $1,640.  Ms Kosh and Mr Kennedy tied for "Wackiest Classroom" and will get to share the trophy. Grade One student Cieran S. raised the most money, bringing in an incredible $275!    Last but not least, not only did the students bring in $7,000 net for our school, it was an incredible, fun, and wacky day! 

Watch for May 2016, when the second annual Wild and Wacky Walkathon will be coming your way!
