The Sun Peaks Education Society has worked tirelessly since 2010 to establish community schooling for our rising demographic of children at Sun Peaks.
The Society targeted and met each of its increasing fundraising goals over the years, fully meeting the necessary expenditures for the educational facilitators, insurance, internet and other administrative costs. Senator Nancy Greene Raine is the SPES’s honorary Chairperson and the SPES is supported by the major businesses in Sun Peaks. Additionally, Mayor Al Raine has been an invaluable partner in fundraising and advocating for the Sun Peaks Secondary Academy (SPSA).
With the Kamloops-Thompson School District’s decision in August 2012 to take the elementary students under its wing, the Sun Peaks Education Society now focuses its fundraising solely on the Grade 7 through 12 students who make up the blended learning model Sun Peaks Secondary Academy.
With this learning model still under the administration of the SPES, it is imperative that the Society continues to raise the needed funds to finance the operational, staffing and insurance expenses of this school.
The positive output of the Society has been received well with tremendous personal and financial input from community and business members. We appreciate the support that has been forthcoming, and we hope we can count on both returning and new patrons to see that the SPSA, and community education at Sun Peaks, not only continues, but thrives.
