On Thursday evening, Oct. 10, a Welcoming Night will be held at Lake City Secondary, Western Campus (formerly Columneetza Secondary).

The event is for students, parents, and families, from Williams Lake and surrounding communities, or for anyone who is interested in  great entertainment and having fun.

The goal of Welcoming Night is to become familiar with the school through guided tours, to meet and greet administrators and staff, and to enjoy refreshments and entertainment.

Tours of the school will be led by senior students from 6 to 7 p.m.

Following this will be an introduction by superintendent of schools, Mark Thiessen, followed by principal Gregg Gaylord and chief Fred Robbins from Esket’emc.

“Just the Morning,” a traditional drumming and dancing group, skilled in traditional men and women’s dances, jingle, grass and fancy, have agreed to celebrate the evening with a display of their work.

High school musicians and drama students in the role of clowns will also provide creative entertainment.

Information on teachers/administrators/counsellors and support workers will be provided in the form of handouts with pictures and information about who to contact for every need.

Beverages, bannock and sub sandwich pieces will be served. Everyone is encouraged to bring a favorite dish if they are able to add to the refreshments.

For students and families, for young and old, the goal is to bring people to the campus and to celebrate students, family and school in Williams Lake and surrounding communities.
