Students show appreciation for bus drivers

While it is well known that a school cannot function without the faculty, unfortunately, those who ensure that your children arrive to school safe and secure tend to go unnoticed.

While it is well known that a school cannot function without the faculty, unfortunately, those who ensure that your children arrive to school safe and secure tend to go unnoticed.

That is why Williams Lake Secondary School, where approximately three quarters of the school (420 kids) take the bus, held a Bus Driver Appreciation Day on Thursday, Jan. 21.

Both teachers and students arrived at WLSS early in order to prepare hot chocolate and thank-you cards.

The drivers were shocked and delighted to receive these small tokens of gratitude. It was the least we could do for those who drive to and from such distances as Likely, Big Lake, McLeese Lake and even Tatla Lake.

Students and staff would like to let all the bus drivers of School District 27 know how much they are appreciated, especially during these harsh winter conditions.
