Spe­cial to The News We asked Char-Lan Dis­trict High school prin­ci­pal Cather­ine Cooper for her thoughts on how this school year went and she re­sponded by say­ing: “It had been a ex­cep­tional year for Char-Lan, the stu­dents rep­re­sented the school proudly and honourable in all forms.”

We also asked her for some high­lights and here is what she said:
