September 18 was a cool morning but some Bentley school students were busy cooking up a storm outside on big barbeques.

For the second year, the school’s welcome back breakfast was ham-and-eggers with hash browns prepared by leadership team students from grades six and up who want to be part of the team.

The cooking was done outside in the elementary school parking lot, and people ate inside the elementary gym where coffee and juice was supplied and students had set up tables and chairs.

About 300 plates were served, comparative to last year’s numbers, with almost $920 raised to go towards school field trips.

Students later watched a Terry Fox movie.

At noon a complimentary hotdog and chips lunch was offered by the parent council before students set out just after 1 p.m. on a designated route around town for the Terry Fox Run.

Back at the school after completing the course there were games and more “special races”.

Many had collected pledges for the Terry Fox Foundation.

About 320 people, including some kindergarten, staff, and parents, took part in the day.
