SACHIGO LAKE – Students in Sachigo Lake really had a lot of fun decorating their school this year for the holidays. The students at the Martin McKay Memorial School decorated the doors of their classrooms.
The work made the school a brighter place through December. Principal Robin Warner shares “The students worked really hard on this”.
Students in the community, working with their teachers and teaching aides did the doors in early December to decorate the school.
