The wheels on the bus go round ‘n’ round
All drivers of the new bus would be volunteers from the school and each one would obtain the proper training and licenses. In that scenario, a team would only have to pay 50 cents per kilometre, saving money.
The main form of fundraising is an online lottery for of prizes. Tickets are $10 each, three tickets for $20, or five tickets for $30. The first-prize is a $4,000 travel voucher, second-prize is a new Weber barbecue ($1,000 value), and the third-prize is a Sealy mattress and box spring set valued at $1,000. The draw will be held at Avon View High School on Dec. 18.
The school is looking to reach alumni from AVHS, Windsor Regional High School, and Hants West Regional High School to help support this cause. If individuals live outside of Nova Scotia, they should contact the school to purchase tickets. Think of it this way, even if you lose, you’re still supporting a great cause. We need a bus in the AVHS parking lot by 2020, the project’s end goal.
