Parkland students rally on Raider Day

Raider Day was October 18 at Parkland Middle School. See photos online now.

Students at Parkland Middle School enjoyed a day of fun at Raider Day on October 18. The students from Grade 7 to 9 faced off against each other in colours of black, silver and purple to be the winner of events like the Chariot Race, Polly Wants a Cracker and a blind Treasure Hunt.

In the end, the Grade 8 and 9 students outlasted the 7s for an unprecedented tie, but it was easy to see that good times were had by all students who dressed up in their team finery for the day.

Photos from the event are online at the Townsman’s Flickr page or check out a special photo feature in the print edition of the Townsman.
