  Not only does Ashley have promising options, she loves her work – there’s always more to be
  learned – hair cutting techniques or colouring – so she won’t get bored.

  Ashley’s graduation ceremony took place at UFV – Mission on Wednesday, June 6, 2012 and
  was attended by many Sts’ailes supporters. Her advice to anyone weighing their career
  opportunities is to follow your dreams and not to give up.

                                       Summer fun includes safety and sunscreen!!

    Eating Well… this summer means more fun avours. Veggies are great on the grill, try sweet potatoes, carrots or
    asparagus! For summer safety keep small children away from BBQs and always supervise the BBQ.
