It has been a tough couple of weeks for students and school administrators.

First there was Amanda Todd, the B.C. teenager who took her own life after she faced years of bullying.

Then on the morning of Oct. 19th, students in the Central Okanagan woke up to terrible news.
A crash in Peachland the night before claimed the lives of a 20-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl.
Both went to Mount Boucherie High School in West Kelowna.

Two other teens were sent to hospital with life threatening injuries.
Rebecca spoke with Hugh Gloster, the Central Okanagan's superintendent of schools, about what the school district does to help students get through tough times.
