Students hit reading target a week early

Teachers at Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw Elementary school challenged students to read 10,000 minutes in three weeks.

Students responded enthusiastically and reached the goal in a blistering fast two weeks.

Their prize was classic humiliation wrought upon the teachers, who bore the punishment with good humour.

Davis Henderson, Cultural Engagement Worker, got a “cul-de-sac” haircut.

Darryl Coon, Education Assistant and P.E. teacher, got a mohawk.

Melissa Marsh, outgoing vice-principal of 13 years, got a streak of electric blue in her hair and smeared principal Reed Allen with a pie to his face. Then the two incoming vice-principals added a bucket of shaving cream on the head of their new boss.

It all went to show that reading can be fun!
