Lending a hand

Some students from Grindrod Elementary spent Monday afternoon helping their community prepare for high water!

Grindrod Principal Jeff Abbott comments students from the school’s Grade 5-7 class walked to Grindrod Park from the school and spent the afternoon sandbagging.

“They wanted to help support the community as Shuswap River is rising. All the bagging materials had been left at the park so the kids brought our school shovels and worked as a team to fill as many bags as they could.”

“Helping our community is important to us as a school community,” he added.
