• Covid-19 School Shut Down

    Posted by Sean Souter on 3/28/2020

    Hello students and parents!  I'm trying to comply with the different messages coming from all levels of the education system. There still is no clear resolution to the challenge of students learning from home.

    For the moment - and as directed by the CDSBEO and Ministry of Education - students should be using the government run on-line learning materials. You can find links to those resources here:

    I encourage you to continue working on geography. The activities on the ministry website are the best replacement we have at the moment for in-class learning.

    Take care and I hope to see you soon,

    Mr. S
