This morning, a number of special guests, and representatives from CTV Barrie, The Orillia Packet and Times and Orillia Today, descended on Rama Central P.S. to help us celebrate our second place finish in the LSF/RBC Our Canada Project competition.

Our award assembly was hosted by two Grade 8 students and our principal, Mrs. Lefuel.

    What a wonderful event! I am excited all over again.
    Thanks to Monika for representing each of the Rehabs. I am proud of all the students and teachers involved ... and especially Margaret. Caring for the future of our environment and wildlife is an important lesson we all need to learn and it looks like you kids are already fabulous caretakers of tomorrow!
    Congrats Kids!!!
