School reaps cash for social media

Okanagan Mission Secondary School’s Social Media class received a grant for $15,000 from the BC provincial government today. 

The press release from School District 23 states:

"This money will be used to fund an anti-bullying campaign aimed at raising online awareness. We believe strongly in promoting a positive image online, and in practicing good digital citizenship.

We have been working hard on brainstorming ideas for this project. When our application for the grant was accepted, there
was much celebration. Our most ambitious ideas can now become reality!

MLA Steve Thomson and Trustees Moyra Baxter and Chris Gorman were nice enough to visit our school today and discuss the possibilities of the project with us.

Their support is appreciated and we look forward to exceeding their expectations!"
