    Terry Fox Run
    by Office Staff - Friday, 29 September 2017, 8:59 AM
     

    This year all Titans, staff and students, will participate in the Terry Fox Run on Friday, September 29th. This represents an opportunity for our entire school to celebrate Terry Fox, an iconic Canadian hero, and work to further his already incredible legacy. We have two central goals; create community within our school and raise money for the Terry Fox foundation. Terry considered ALL donors a part of the solution. Let's be part of the solution and donate to the Terry Fox Foundation. Here's a couple of ways you can donate;
    1. Send you son or daughter with a donation to give to their C block teacher. Our goal is a "toonie from every Titan for Terry"
    2. Use the following unique to South Kamloops Secondary online donation service; http://www.terryfox.ca/SouthKamloopsSecondary   All online donations will be added to our fundraising totals. 
    We will be collecting funds for Terry until Wednesday, October 4th. Thank you for considering and helping the students and staff of South Kamloops Secondary reach their goals.

    Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance

    For your convenience, we’ve made arrangements for families to voluntarily purchase student accident insurance through the Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance program, underwritten by Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc (iA Financial Group).

    Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance offers protection against the unexpected costs of injury from accidents, and is especially valuable for families who:

    • do not have medical or dental plans,
    • have limited plans, as it may help supplement health and dental benefits, or
    • have active children who enjoy sports and outdoor activities.

    For complete plan details, please visit kidsplus.ca.
