Smiles all around at the fair

Gwa’sala-’Nakwaxda’xw School fun fair draws crowds last week.

From popcorn to cake walks, from the tooth fairy to Dzunukwa, there was something for everyone at the Gwa’sala-’Nakwaxda’xw School fun fair last week.

The well-attended event offered prizes from a slew of games throughout the school, as well as face-painters, concessions and an auction.

Proceeds from the event totalled an impressive $3,700 according to an early count last week, with the monies collected going towards funding future field-trips.

Organizers of the event wanted to extend a “gila’kasla” and their thanks to all who attended the fun fair and to all who helped make the annual event such a success.
