Friends of Lois E. Hole School Enhancement Society

Who Are We?

Friends of Lois E. Hole (LEH) School Enhancement Society was formed in 2016 and aims to enrich learning and engagement by providing extracurricular activities and special community events to students, families, and the wider community. The goal of Friends of LEH is to create a supportive, caring environment where childhood relationships nurture for a lifetime.  We value parent and school staff feedback to determine the direction of our fundraising efforts and to identify key areas where funds raised can benefit the students and the school.

Friends of LEH News

Hello Families! Exciting news!! We are once again running our Davison Apple/Pear fundraiser! The due date for orders is early in September, so it’s important to get your order in on time. For those of you new to our school this is a wonderful opportunity to support our ‘local’ (local to our BC Okanagan) fruit producers and have fresh healthy school lunch snacks. The apples and pears keep very well and on Davison Orchards website is an excellent description of the apple varieties. Many families in the past have also opted to order an extra case or two to send into schools for lunch/breakfast programs or to the food bank.
