UPCOMING

Thursday June 21 is National Indigenous Peoples Day. We will be having a celebration on the field, by the new outdoor classroom and garden. We will be cooking salmon, bannock and other seafood and serving iced tea and medicinal herb infused waters. There will be a painting station, games and an opportunity to go on a nature walk. We will be outside all day- we will need help to set up and clean up first and last blocks (any volunteers are appreciated!). Anyone and everyone is invited to attend. Please let us know if you’re coming and drop by anytime during the day.

All grads your v-stole needs to be returned. You will be charged $38.00 if you do not return it.

 

CAREER CENTRE: Volunteering, Apprenticeships, Jobs and Opportunities

Attention all students aged 14 to 17.  The new 2018-19 Encounters With Canada opportunities for Canadian teens to  check out future Career options in Ottawa are now open for registration.  This is a great chance to meet other young people from across the country and spend an adventure-filled week in Ottawa for a cost of $750.  This  fee includes a round trip plane ticket, accommodation, and meals. The sessions do fill up quickly especially  in the science, law, medical, first responders, and sports fitness career fields. Please contact the Career Centre for more information.

The Canadian Armed Forces Aboriginal Summer Programs application forms  are now posted.  Students must be 17 at the time the program begins but can apply when they are 16.
