So just what makes this school so special? Well, all #ComoxValleySchools are pretty special but Airport Elementary shares a unique relationship with 19 Wing Comox/CFB Comox as it is the one school that serves the catchment area in and around the base.
Although students' families are both military and non-military, the close proximity of the school to the base invites opportunity to share in unique events arranged by, for or with military personnel.
The Grey Cup visiting tour in western Canada is a Canadian Armed Forces #militaryappreication activity that extended to include Comox because of Honorary Colonel (HCol) Diane McCurdy, 442 Squadron, and her affiliation with Canada Company: Many Ways to Serve - a civilian organization that supports the troops.
