Belmont ISP Students 2018 – 2019
Belmont harvested pac choi and pomegranate crunch lettuce.
The Belmont Bytes robotics team was invited to attend a robotics demo and a provincial funding announcement at Reynold’s Secondary on May 21st. The BC Government announced a $250k contribution to support growth of FIRST Robotics programs in BC.
A quote from the BC Premier, “I always like it when I get to visit my old high school, Reynolds Secondary. Even better when there’s robots and I get to announce an additional $250k in funding for FIRST Robotics.
Investing in these programs creates more opportunities for students who are passionate about science, technology, engineering and math, and helps prepare them for a career in BC’s thriving tech sector.”
Congratulations to Jessica M. on her recent acceptance into the Spanish Exchange Program 2019 – 2020. Jessica will host a student in August for 3 months and then her 3 month experience will commence in January. Felicidates!!

Belmont Ultimate Frisbee
Belmont Ultimate Dawgs go to BC Provincals!!
The Belmont Ultimate team went to the Provincial Championships May 23 & 24 in Surrey, BC, and represented Belmont well with incredible determination and herculean effort.
The field was fierce and playing against the top teams in the province, including the first seed and eventual champions, this was the first time in BC High School Sports history that a banner was presented to the top AAA and AA high schools for Ultimate.
The Dawgs, Cole B., Devin B., Hamish B., Andrew C., Mykenzy G., Razel H., Peter M., Kayle M., Niklaus R., and Lina Y., as well as coaches Sano and Stee, were very, very happy to have been able to participate in such a historic occasion, to give their all during all six matches played, and to learn an incredible amount about the spirit, the sportsmanship, and the strategies and skill sets associated with Ultimate.
We say farewell to the grade 12’s who are graduating and wish them well in their future, hopefully continuing to play Ultimate at post-secondary institutions and in the community … and the rest of us, who are staying, are looking forward to next year, helping to increase interest in the sport, and wearing the Belmont colours with pride.
We also say a special thank you to Coach Dudzik and Dayna, without whose dedicated coaching and efforts to support the team, we would not be where we are … a BC Provincial Championships team!!
Belmont Mountain Bike Team
