Sənpaq’cin News

It’s been a busy two months at Sənpaq’cin School. The students participated in the Okanagan Falls Salmon Feast, Family Night: Meet and Greet BBQ, Terry Fox Run, Reconciliation Art Project and Ceremony, and Residential School Awareness Day (orange t-shirts) for the month of September.

In the month of October, students participated in the Moccasin Mile. For the Boys, Elijah Swan-Hall had the second best time over all, Rylan Gabriel-Baptiste placed first with his age grouping. For the girls, Samera Gabriel and Hannah Jeong placed first with their age grouping. We are so proud of all our students’ efforts in participating in the Moccasin Mile yearly event.

We will miss Diana Roxo dearly, who is taking one year leave of absence. We wish Diana the best with her new addition to her family.

We welcome back Heather Kelliher who will be teaching grades 6 to 8 to the middle of December.

Lisa Caruso will be returning to join our SPC team at the beginning of January.

The SPC basketball team hosted their first fundraiser, to raise money for new team Jersey’s. They had a back sale which raised $230. 00. Thanks to Kali Baptiste for her generous donation of $50.00, and all the parents and community members who supported the sale. The Senior students are now collecting Loonie Auction items for their next fundraiser.
