Valley students were introduced to the sport of archery for the first time thanks to a new community partnership with the Courtenay Fish and Game Club. The introduction of the sport is part of the National Archery in the Schools Program aimed at improving educational performance among elementary and secondary students.
The provincial immunization catch-up program has launched and is designed to help families protect their children against measles. The program runs from April to June, and will provide measles vaccines for children from kindergarten to grade 12 who are unimmunized or not fully immunized.
