PSS Rebels get a brand new ride

Thanks to a Weyerhaeuser grant, PSS Rebels got a brand new ride.

Princeton Secondary’s “Rebels Ride” made possible by Weyerhaeuser Grant.

Princeton Secondary is pleased to have a new multi-function school activity bus made possible through a generous grant provided by Weyerhaeuser Community Foundation that paid a third of the cost of the bus. Thanks to Rob Marshall, Timberlands Manager and Jeff Larsen, Mill Manager of Princeton Weyerhaeuser for their work in this regard. The remainder of the cost has been covered through school and district sources, and with the support of the Princeton Secondary Parent Advisory Committee.

The 23 passenger “Rebels Ride” replaces the well-used PAC van and makes it possible for classes and teams to travel frequently and economically. Since delivery, it has already been on the road most days within Princeton and beyond, for field trips and sporting events. Built for them with a number of structural features that exceed the minimum safety standards currently required in British Columbia, the activity bus has seat belts, air-conditioning and important to the students, speakers connected to a built-in jack.
