A lot of good things happening at Mile 108 Elementary School

Community news happening around the 108 Mile Ranch

Heather Goodall is the new principal at Mile 108 Elementary School and she says she is enjoying the experience.

Goodall, who commutes from Williams Lake on school days, was the vice-principal at Cataline Elementary School in that community before coming to Mile 108 Elementary.

I love it down here. The kids are fabulous and the family support is also fabulous.”

She adds it has been a good transition and the staff has been very supportive.

I think we’ll be doing some really good things this year.”

Goodall says the school’s recent book fair was a great success with the highlight being the Family Hockey Night on Oct. 22 when several members of the 100 Mile House Wranglers attended to participate in a number of events.

It was good. The kids got autographs and pictures with the Wranglers and they played floor hockey with them.

They were very good with the kids. It was nice to see that community support.”
