In 2021, St. Helena Elementary was pleased to unveil our latest literacy venture designed to get books into the hands of kids, and to make them excited about reading: the "Inchy" book vending machine! Our school was one of several elementary schools with BCSD that purchased a book vending machine. 

During the 2020-21 school year, our students had several opportunities to earn an inchy token and purchase a book and this year will be no different. Stay tuned for news on reading competitions and other fun ways to earn those tokens! :)
