School has begun! Thank you to the parents who expressed their beautiful hopes for their children’s school year at our opening circle and potluck. Our staff, Nicole, Rose and Josee look forward to another wonderful year with our students new and returning.
The Zack Harvey Memorial Scholarship started giving out money to grade 12 students to support their post-secondary education in Spring 2016.
The Whole School Board of Directors are growing the scholarship fund through targeted fundraisers so that they can continue to give money to young people who once attended the Whole School. Past successful applicants include: Maya Green, Shanti Harris, and Hannah Abbey.
This year’s successful applicants include: Conrad Swetland, Talel McBriar, and Alexander McIntyre. Congratulations!
Deposits to our KSCU Whole School Scholarship Fund Account can be made directly through Kootenay Saving Credit Union South Slocan branch. Additionally you can send a cheque to:
Whole School, PO Box 240, Winlaw, BC, V0G 2J0
We also accept e-transfers to our email@example.com account. Let us know that the money is to go into the Whole School Scholarship Fund Account.
