Student sees KSS principals get waxed

Major fundraiser comes with a bit of pain

Principal Jesse Witte accepted his fate at the hands of VIU esthetics student Gillian to wax his legs to raise money for Terry Fox.

The students at Kwalikum Secondary School recently had a lot to celebrate as their fundraising efforts for the Terry Fox Run were rewarded by getting to watch both their principal, Jesse Witte  and vice-principal, Rudy Terpstra have their legs waxed by a couple of VIU esthetic students.

The esthetics students, Amanda and Gillian, completed the hairy task under the supervision of their instructor, Lesley Osborne, of Lesley’s Esthetics.

In the past, the KSS administrators have been great sports by agreeing to various stunts such as sleeping overnight on the school’s roof and wearing a dress for a day. Shortly before this year’s deed was done, Mr. Terpstra was heard trying to barter an entire weekend on the roof if the waxing was called off.

When all was totaled up, the staff and students of KSS managed to collect almost $1,900 in donations for the Terry Fox Run.
