Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,


We hope that all of our Stingers had a great weekend!   


Please see the information below in this week’s Week at a Glance. 


Terry Fox Run

On behalf of our Stingers, we want to thank our Storrington community for supporting our school in the fight against cancer and keeping Terry’s dream alive!  This year, we raised a total of $657.00 towards finding a cure for cancer and supporting the Terry Fox Foundation.  

Storrington Cross Country Team

Congratulations to our Storrington Cross Country team who participated in the District Cross Country Championships.  In Atom Boys, Sonny Roberts finished 9th, Oliver McCallum finished 37th and Hudson Ireland finished 47th.  In Atom Girls, Emy Winter finished 46th.  In Bantam Boys, Xander Williams finished 21st and Cohen Davidson finished 28th.  In Senior Boys, Colton Monds finished 25th.  Great job Stingers!

Storrington Student Council Bake Sale

We would like to extend a special thanks to our twelve amazing members of this year’s Student Council for planning great charity and spirit day events throughout the 2023-2024 school year! Student Council’s first fundraising event will be taking place during the lunch hours on October 31st. Students are invited to bring in a loonie to purchase something from the Student Council Spooktacular Bake Sale. All items will be sold for a dollar and will be nut free and cinnamon free. The money raised will go towards the outdoor activity initiative that the council has voted upon. The profits will be spent on new equipment for classes to play with during their recess breaks. Thank you Parents and Guardians, for your continued support of these fun school events!
