The SAMS staff and students would like to thank everyone who supported our fundraising efforts

22 SAMS students tour eight universities on school trip

They toured eight universities in four cities in 10 days.

SAMS students participating in the University Tour trip return to Bella Coola with lots of experience and memories to build upon. They toured eight universities in four cities in 10 days. The 22 students explored different cultural and natural history phenomenon: a wild life park, oriental gardens, the UBC Biodiversity Museum, Royal BC Museum, Government House and saw two plays – Lend me a Tenor and Salt Baby.

The SAMS staff and students would like to thank everyone who supported our fundraising efforts particularly our major raffle donors Glacier Creek Outfitting, Bella Coola Mountain Lodge, and Pacific Coastal Airlines. The winners of the raffle are: Catalina Schooner (kayaking), Walker Larson (dinner at the Lodge), and Phyllis George (airline tickets). Congratulations to the winners. The students are also winners as this experience expands their horizons and options for their future.

Please visit SAMS Facebook for more pictures from the trip.
