    Lisa Grover '90 shared the following about working with Annika Belireau '19, who was an intern at her law firm this summer:

    "Grover-Froese, a law office in Banff and Canmore, Alberta, had the pleasure of hiring Annika Belireau '19 as a summer intern. Annika is interested in pursuing a career in law and Grover-Froese was delighted to have her on board for the summer. With her keen interest, Annika brought her dedicated work ethic and creative solutions to our firm. I encourage all alumni to consider hiring a young Shawnigan graduate, and I thank Annika for her dedication. We hope to see her at our office next summer."

    Every September for the last 24 years, our students at Shawnigan Lake School have focused on cancer awareness month by participating in the Terry Fox Run, a Canada-wide movement inspired by Terry to raise funds for cancer research. We have also welcomed the Tour de Rock - Cops for Cancer team to campus. This Vancouver Island-based charity cycles 1400 km, stopping at schools and communities to raise money for childhood cancer research and supporting children living with cancer to attend Camp Goodtimes.
