It is with great regret that we are announcing that the 2020 SSS Craft Fair will have to be cancelled due to the most recent public health order. As a result, we will begin voiding and shredding applications and cheques next week. Further, money orders will be cashed and reimbursement cheques sent out next week. Similarly, cash payments will be returned next week. If you would like to have your application/cheque returned, please reply asap to make other arrangements.
We really appreciate the time and effort that vendors have put in to prepare for the event this year. We were looking forward to providing a safe opportunity for vendors to share their gifts with members of our community. Please consider applying to participate in the 2021 SSS Craft Fair. In the meantime, take care and be well.

Bullying...Be in the know
Simply put, bullying is a pattern of unwelcome or aggressive behaviour, often with the goal of making others uncomfortable, scared or hurt. It’s almost always used as a way of having control or power over their target, and it is often based on another person’s appearance, culture, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.
Every child deserves an education free from discrimination, bullying, harassment, intimidation and violence. The ERASE (Expect Respect and A Safe Education) Bullying strategy is part of the Province of British Columbia’s efforts to personalize learning and supports for all students.
