We are faced with small cohorts of students across all grades.
There are challenges providing a broad based graduation program
because of our numbers, but we have been able
to take advantage of the Spider distributed learning options. We will
continue to work with the SCAS (Spider Program) to ensure that we
can provide the options that our students need.
We try to maintain a high level of physical activity via our intramural
program, along with our extracurricular sports- our Annual Sports
Day is a highlight for our school.
We are supported well by community members volunteering in
various ways including: coaching sports, running our hot lunch
program, as well as assisting us in boat building for the annual April
Tools Boat Race.
Our student population includes 22 % with First Nations ancestry.
All students have a responsibility to themselves and to society to develop their potential: academically, socially, physically, and emotionally. A balanced development, accompanied by excellence in those areas for which they have a particular aptitude, will maximize their chances of achieving happiness in life while making a positive contribution to society.
These goals have been developed in consultation with the School Planning Council (SPC).
1. Improve the literacy level of all of our students. An emphasis will be on improving writing.
2. Increase the level of physical activity of all of our students.
3. Increase the level of cultural awareness of all of our students.
