The annual Isabella Dicken Spring Tea was as popular as ever this year, despite some controversy over menu changes.

Families and friends of students enjoyed being served cheese and biscuits, cakes and refreshments by the Grade Six students this morning. The move away from sandwiches this year was met with a mixed response.

The event is the biggest fundraiser of the years for the school. As always, the line up of people waiting for their chance to have tea, went out of the gym and out into the parking lot.

The school also held a book sale today. The books were for students to purchase as part of the reading incentive program at the school where parents log the hours their child spends every evening reading, with a reward of a free book after they hit their target number of hours.
