On Friday September 25th the Elementary and Secondary students gathered together to participate in team building activities in honour of a Canadian Hero - Terry Fox.

Terrance Stanley "Terry" Fox CC OD (July 28, 1958 – June 28, 1981) was a Canadian athlete, humanitarian, and cancer research activist. In 1980, with one leg having been amputated, he embarked on a cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research.

We remembered him at BCISB with a series of activities that gave us a sense of gratefulness for our health and instilled in students a drive to help others.
