Voting underway for Khowhemun Elementary School’s Aviva grant attempt

We may be in the home stretch of an federal election campaign, but there’s also a vote of a different sort going on.

A group of VIU nursing students is hoping you’ll help them get an Aviva Community Fund grant for Duncan’s Khowhemun Elementary School.

The VIU students have been working at the school as part of their courses, and their project includes a new walking trail, new play areas, and an outdoor workout circuit for both adults and students.

Anita Carroll is one of their professors.

Carroll says they’ve also been doing a lot of other fundraising to try to get the project of the ground, but the Aviva grant could be the final piece.  She also says they’re getting some help from Ecole Mont Prevost; which won a grant recently for its own project.

Voting started today.
