Brinnngggg, Brinnngggg

The 11 o’clock alarm sounds.

Woooooooooosh.

A Tsunami of students rush into the halls.

Shark like, the students circle two tables in the front foyer.

It’s Bannock Thursday at Fort St James Secondary School (FSJSS) and the kids just get so excited, Elaine Dyer A.K.A ‘Grannie’, said.

“I’ve been coming to the high school for years to volunteer knit, but now I help with the bannock and the kids just love it,” she said.

Shirley Pierre and Irene Antoine started the bannock program six years ago giving FSJSS students a free hot treat every Thursday. Amy Felix, Vanessa Prince and Grannie also help prepare the treats which are out on three large tables in the front foyer to allow for a quick, get-it-yourself service.

“It really gets you through the week knowing bannock is coming Thursdays,” Hannah Denengelsen, 16, student at FSJSS, said and she chowed down her bannock and jam.

“I like how it brings everyone in the school into one place, it’s fun,” Rachael Crook, 18, FSJSS student, said.
