Local students taking part in 'Chaleur WEek' activities ahead of 'WE Day'

Students at ESN and BHS have a packed schedule this week as they take part in 'Chaleur WEek'.

'Chaleur WEek' officially got underway on Sunday and will see students take part in several activities throughout the week in an effort to raise funds to attend the annual WE Day event in October.

Among the activities, students will go door-to-door collecting non-perishable food items for the Bathurst Volunteer Centre on Tuesday.

'Chaleur Walk for Water' takes place on Friday, an relay-style event that will see students strap water jugs on their backs and walk from Petit-Rocher to the KC Irving Centre.
