We were particularly proud of the work our student council members did at hosting. From welcoming visitors, giving tours, to also managing the food service,” said Brian Dioszeghy, Principal of James Bay Eeyou School, “They were amazing. Finally, our Science Team were very committed and worked so hard to make the Fair come together. I am so grateful for their dedication to our students.”
