Among the fundraising efforts by the school’s PAC are a $5,000 donation from Pembina Pipelines and a $1,000 donation from Apache Corporation, along with financial support from the school.
Clearview PAC Treasurer Cheryl Vander Linden says the court was barely used before, but is now the students’ favourite place to play a variety of games like ball hockey.
“The Clearview PAC would like to thank Pembina Pipelines and Apache for their generous contributions to the Clearview School Basketball Court Restoration Project,” says Vander Linden. “The students and PAC appreciate the continued support we receive from the community.”
Snow shovels were also purchased in the hopes that the students will continue to use the court throughout the winter.
Approximately 140 students attend Clearview Elementary 30 minutes northeast of Fort St. John.
