Spotlight on Learning
Student safety traveling to and from school is of utmost importance for us all.  Thank you to Christine LaRocque (main organizer), Town of Banff staff, Backtrax, and RCMP for supporting a well-run and fun Bike Safety event for our Gr. 2 and 3 students.  A Gr. 3 student remarked, my gears haven’t been working for three months and now they are fixed! A Gr. 2 student exclaimed, Everyone should wear a helmet! Thank you also to the Fire Fighter Association for their donation of two bikes.
