Students get corn-y

Corn roast and spirit event was held at Parkland on Oct. 11

Parkland Secondary student body president Ryan Trelford calls his classmates in for corn as PAC chair Terry Lanktree (right) and parent volunteer Laine Bennett prepare the meal during a spirit barbecue.

Hot corn and hot dogs were served up by student and parent volunteers at Parkland Secondary School’s recent spirit barbecue.

It’s one of two spirit barbecues put on by the student council and the parents’ advisory council (PAC). PAC chair Terry Lanktree says they are fun events, designed to offer students a bit of a break in their routine.

“It’s a way of getting kids out, talking, visiting and showing some school spirit,” he said.

Student council president Ryan Trelford said working with parent volunteers shows they are involved in the school and the students themselves have fun and enjoy something a little different.

Trelford added Parkland normally holds one spirit barbecue in the fall and another in the spring. The school also holds spirit assemblies indoors throughout the year.
