School District 58 naming new assistant superintendent.
Superintendent Stephen McNiven says Jameel Aziz was most recently the principal of the South Sa-Hali Elementary School in Kamloops, and a past President of both the BC Principals and Vice Principals Associations, and the Canadian Association of Principals.
"We think he's going to do an excellent job. He brings a lot of interesting experience across all grade levels, and in terms of provincial perspective as well."
Aziz takes over for Christine Perkins, who left to become the superintendent of School District No 8 (Kootenay Lake) following the 2016/17 school year.
Rain, and cooler temperatures lowering the Fire Danger Rating in the Merritt Fire Zone.
Kamloops Fire Centre information officer Jody Lucius says the rain throughout the area yesterday morning lowered the rating to HIGH, from EXREME, which is has been for the better part of the last two-months.
"We're still seeing pockets of EXTREME in the Lillooet, Lytton and Kelowna Fire Zones, and moderate to HIGH in the rest of the Kamloops Fire Centre."
Despite lightning in many parts of the Kamloops Fire Centre over the weekend, Lucius says not one new fire start was recorded.
