Big Valley School Grade 7-9 students were excited to have their Ontario “Twins” visiting last week. Monday and Tuesday were spent camping in Banff with trips to Drumheller and Edmonton midweek. On Friday the students and their twins were out and about the Village participating in a scavenger hunt. The students attempted to give their twins a glimpse of what Big Valley Community Spirit looks like. Thank you to all the parents who have helped support this great experience.
