Today we received a fantastic submission from Errington Elementary School, in Errington BC. Not familiar with Errington, BC? Well, let’s get acquainted with it together.

Now home to an eclectic assortment of farmers, artists and craftspeople, Errington is also the gateway to the Englishman River Falls in the magnificent Englishman River Falls Provincial Park.

A town of 3,500 people, Errington is proud of it’s people, it’s clean and natural beauty and it’s connection to community. It’s attractions include the community-based market Errington Farmers Market, the North Island Wildlife Recovery Association where animals are nursed back to health and visitors are educated on wildlife issues, and the six surrounding world-class golf courses.

 Errington is a “hidden gem” where people are “willing to help each other any chance they get”. Here are just a few of the wonderful submissions that students of the grade 2 /3 class at Errington Elementary School made to explain what makes their community so great:
