Work Experience

Do you have a part-time JOB or are you planning to work over the summer? Do you want to earn 4 credits towards graduation? Work Experience is a 4-credit course, where you work 100 hours at a job, fill out log sheets to prove your hours, and complete a self-evaluation and reflection questions. If you are interested please email Mrs. Robertson jrobertson@sd62.bc.ca or go to A119 to sign up.

*An application form and a few additional documents must be in place PRIOR to students beginning to log their work-based hours. As well, students are not able to use previous hours, the only hours that may be considered are those hours gained AFTER the Work Experience contract has been signed by the WEX Teacher, application documents are submitted, and a Worksite inspection has been completed.

Media & Youth

Sometimes the media will interview students or ask for comments “off-school property.” The media consents that you sign or decline at the start of the school year only apply to anything happening school property or at a school endorsed event (like a field trip). There are no consent requirements to protect students who are approached by media “off-school property” for comments or interview. Please consider having a discussion with your child(ren) about media, your expectations and their comfort level. We encourage anyone that is uncomfortable to decline comments or interviews and to let us know if they need assistance or felt pressured by the media outlet.

Youth Action Team

The Youth Action Team hosted Naloxone training at Belmont on May 11th, . part of their Youth In Action Grant project, that aims to bring youth voice to the conversation around substance use education in schools and the community.  This was  It was a huge success!! 120 youth came through to be trained and receive a naloxone kit or certification. Teachers also took part to be trained and receive a kit! As part of the YIA grant project, the youth participated in an anonymous survey asking them about their knowledge around using substances safely and their ideas or requests about how they would like to see substance use education shared with them. The YAT team shared that they really enjoyed hosting this event and training their fellow students in using Naloxone. They also recruited a number of new members that are interested in joining the YAT to work on projects that facilitate health and wellbeing in their school and community.
