Fernie School Aged Care hosted a Valentine’s Day bake sale.

Fernie School Aged Care students spread the love

Fernie School Aged Care (FSAC) children were spreading the love this Valentine’s Day during their third annual Valentine’s week bake sale.

Fernie School Aged Care (FSAC) children were spreading the love this Valentine’s Day during their third annual Valentine’s week bake sale, hosted on Thursday and Friday afternoon.

Raising funds to send a less fortunate child to summer camp, Fernie Academy and Max Turyk Elementary School aged care children offered sweet treats to all, including cupcakes, heart-shaped cookies and rice crispy squares.

“It’s an annual event that the older children anticipate each February, as they do a lot of preparation. They are also part of the decision making in terms of what charity or cause we will fund each year, so it teaches them a lot about responsibility and team work, as well as awareness of the world around them,” FSAC director Mandy Potter said. “It’s a good opportunity for children to be a part of the community and see themselves as part of the community.”

After raising $150 last year FSAC children have their sights set high. The children hope to raise $195 this time around, with the ultimate goal of being able to send one child to summer camp.
