SCHOOL RECOGNITION

Fox Valley Legends Sr. Girls Volleyball Team excited accepted a request from their MLA, Mr. Doug Steele, to visit the Legislative Building in Regina. The team and parents were given a tour of the legislative building, greeted by Doug Steele, met with Premier Scott Moe and was given a tour of his office. The team was introduced in chambers and a short speech, by their MLA, gave recognition of their community’s support for school sport. It was a superb day filled with learning and new experiences.  Fox Valley School is just one example of the terrific support all of our SWAC schools get from their communities.  We thank everyone for believing in the value of School Sport.
