New Info

  • Inside Out Day – On April 14 wear either your shirt or pants inside out for the day to earn house points!
  • studies.


Some Reminders:


  • If your family is currently struggling financially, the school may be able to help support you in some ways.  We now have a pantry where students and parents can help themselves to various grocery items.  This is something we can only offer this year due to some funding the government has given out. Our YCW, Beth Dick, is in charge of this.   Please reach out to us if you want more information on what we can offer and ask for Beth or for one of the administrators. 
  • Bathroom stalls. We do have a policy that if more than one student is in a bathroom stall, we will send them home.  We find that usually, when more than one student is involved, it often also involves skipping class, vaping, vandalism, etc 
  • Report It –  Please walk students through this way to report concerns.  There are QR codes placed around the school to make accessing the site easy. 
    • Absences – To verify a child’s absence, please call Barb Chaput at 250 785 8378 or email her at
  • Indigenous Program – Indigenous Support Teacher Mr. Lovell is available on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday in the CRC room for academic support. Tuesday and Thursday for in classroom support. Sylvia (Indigenous Support Worker) is available for in-class and in-office support Monday to Friday.
