Every school community consists of different stakeholders including the students, teachers, parents, staff members, school board members among others. With each playing a different role in the community, it is not every day that you get to have all these parties together.
A Fun Day? Why?

Every so often, at least annually, it is a very rewarding experience to organize and participate in an event that brings all the parties together in an informal and relaxed setting.
