From our Counsellors

Gr. 12 students met during Focus block last week to review their Transcript Verification Reports (TVR’s). This Ministry of Education document has essential information that needs to be reviewed by students and parents in order to ensure student graduation eligibility. A large number of TVR’s were never claimed. Students must see their counsellor-of-record asap to pick up the TVR and/or to discuss any errors or questions, and make arrangements to add any course requirements to second semester schedules in order to ensure graduation status for June. All second semester schedule changes for Gr. 12 students must be completed before the Christmas break.

 

A copy of the  power point presentation that was reviewed with students, TVR and Student Transcript Service and Post Secondary Power Point can be viewed at:

Belmont hosts local MP Alistair McGregor & Federal NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh…

On Tuesday November 13 we hosted a Q&A  for our students from selected Social Studies, English and AVID classes with MP Alistair McGregor and Federal NDP Jagmeet Singh.  Our students asked insightful questions ranging from homelessness to environmental issues like the impact of the Site C Dam as well as plans to honour the 94 Calls to Action from the Truth & Reconciliation Commission.  It was inspiring to hear our students ask such critical questions.  What a great opportunity for our school to share our great school.  Student MCs Navya P. and Keagan T. also had the opportunity to provide our guests with a guided tour of our wonderful school.  Thanks to Elder Henry Chipps for providing the Aboriginal Territorial Acknowledgement and Welcome as well as Trustees Wendy Hobbs, Margot Swinburnson, and Dianna Seaton for attending.

Raven Dancer’s final journey to our Community Garden

On November 21st our school and community will celebrate Raven Dancer’s final journey into our Community Garden where it will continue to help students learn about the Coast Salish People’s ways and the relationship between people and the land we share.

Elders, community members, students, and staff will all share in this wonderful event. A special thanks to our Aboriginal Education staff and the Hulitan Family & Community Services Society for sharing Raven Dancer with us.
