Why has SD63 rejected dry grad donations?

The District 63 school board is the only board in B.C. that rejects the available funds

I did not see any headlines blaring the deaths or injuries of intoxicated students. This could be in part to the massive volunteer undertaking of parents to facilitate engaging all-night dry grad events.

It is a vast shame that the District 63 school board is repugnant of a donation on behalf of concerned drinkers to help fund dry grad events.

Concerned citizens donate thousands of dollars at the liquor board tills that go towards dry grad activities.

It is disheartening to learn that all donations made at the Saanich, Broadmead, Brentwood Bay and Sidney liquor stores do not go to Stellys, Parkland or Claremont dry grad activities, but end up in the Victoria and Sooke districts.

The District 63 school board is the only board in B.C. that rejects the available funds because of their personal convictions.
