This year we will mark Orange Shirt Day on Thursday, September 29. Please wear orange to commemorate the experiences of Aboriginal children in the residential school system. This day grew out of survivor Phyllis Webstad’s account of having her orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the St. Joseph Mission Residential School in Williams Lake, B.C. Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools, and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for
generations of children to come.
There will be a group picture today at break outside the front of the school for all those wearing an orange shirt or button.
On Thursday, October 6, Artona will be here to photograph students who missed getting their picture taken on September 7. Retakes will also be taken that day. Students requiring a retake will need to bring their Go Card to show the photographer. For information on ordering click here
As of June 30th, 2016 the provincial examination requirements have changed for grade 10 and 11 courses that were previously examinable. Students not having taken a Math 10 provincial exam will be required to write a provincial math skills assessment prior to graduation; students having already completed a Math 10 and written the associated provincial exam are exempt from the math skills assessment. At this time, graduating students in 2016-2017 must still take a Language Arts 12 (or equivalent) and write the associated provincial exam; this requirement is expected to be replaced in the following school year with a provincial literacy assessment for those students not graduating by June 2017.Click here for further information:
