Virtual Pep Rally

To celebrate school spirit heading into our final month, the Leadership class wanted put together a virtual celebration. Even though we have had to stay apart, this is our way of coming together as a school community.

In addition a huge shout out to our Leadership students for their efforts in hanging balloons over the entrances and blasting some great tunes for students and staff as they arrived for both AM & PM sessions.

Thank you to all students and parents for their hard work in the scholarship application process.  There were hundreds of applications for all SD62, PAC, and Belmont based scholarships this year which is great to see! All winners for these awards will be announced at graduation ceremonies at the end of June.  Students will receive certificates and important information regarding scholarship/bursary retrieval instructions in white envelopes at their grad ceremonies – please make sure these are kept safe and looked through thoroughly to ensure all awards can be claimed in a timely manner!  All the best to the grads in their future endeavors – Ms. Hoskins

COVID-19 Vaccinations for 12-17 Years Old – A Message from SD62

As you have likely heard, the provincial government has announced that children between 12 and 17 years old can now register for their COVID-19 vaccinations. We thought we would put the information in one place for you so that you can read, keep informed and make the best decisions for your family.

Quick highlights from the news release:

  • Young people may register and get their vaccine on their own, or have a parent, guardian or trusted adult assist them.
  • Under the Infants Act, children can give consent as a mature minor to receive health care, like getting a vaccine.
  • Parents, caregivers, guardians and trusted adults can provide their own contact information when registering youth, if preferred. They can also accompany them to their vaccine appointment.
  • Most young people will receive their vaccine in immunization clinics, not in schools.
  • Youth ages 12-17 can tag along to their parent or guardian’s booked appointment and receive an immunization as well. Just let staff at the vaccination centre know upon arrival.

Young people can register themselves and book their appointment:

Learn and make informed decisions for your family:

K-12 Health Check App

A reminder that there is the daily health check application for parents and students to help them determine if they should be attending school or not. The application is available online as a mobile-enabled website, an iPhone application, and a Google Android application.

Sincerely,

SD62 Communications Team

Belmont Grads 2021

Our Belmont school community is so proud of our Grads, and especially the determination and perseverance they have demonstrated during this challenging year. Our Grads really do rock!

There will be increased traffic in our parking lot for the following Grad related activities, our grade 9-11 families may want to consider alternate pick up and drop off locations during these days and times:

Cap, Gown, Grad Mask, and Lawn Sign pick up:

Students or their parent/guardian will be picking up their items during the week of June 7-11. A big thank you to the City of Langford for purchasing lawn signs for our Grads!

Belmont Commencement 2021

The newly re-scheduled dates for the Belmont Graduation Commencement ceremonies are Wednesday, June 23 and Thursday, June 24. Ceremonies will be taking place throughout the day. We will have the upper Goudy parking lot available for Commencement parking, but we expect the parking lot to have extra vehicles on these days as well.

Thank you for your understanding and your support in celebrating the Belmont Grad class of 2021!

Pride Month

Pride month is coming up in June! It is a chance for our communities to celebrate, reflect, promote equality and increase the visibility of LGBTQ2+ communities.  Belmont Leadership is proud to raise awareness around pride month in our school.  We are putting together a display board on various topics in an effort to raise awareness of the LGBTQ2+ community.  The board will rotate between the zone 1, 3, 4, and 5 entrances for one week each throughout the month of June in an effort to reach as many students as possible.
