Tatla Lake School Santa Breakfast

2 schoolThe Tatla Lake School has 21 students this year – quite a rise from the 16 of last year.  But all the older ones will be leaving  – to complete high school they have to go to Williams lake or beyond.  There used to be a dorm in Williams lake, but that didn’t work out (too many drugs) so now locals must either stay with a choice of caring hosts during the week (a bus picks them up at 5:00:am Monday and drops them back at suppertime on Friday) or have parents who decide to buy or rent a second home in town while their kids finish school.  If there are a lot of kids in the family, this can go on for a number of years.
