Stage Production “Bridges”

Our grade 6 and 7 students will be premiering a stage production of the opera “Bridges”, by Dr. Suzanne Windsor-Liscombe on Thursday, February 29th at 1:30 and 7:00 in our gym.

The opera is inspired by the story of Ruby Bridges, a civil rights activist and the first black child to integrate into a New Orleans’ all white public school system.  (https://www.rubybridges.com/)

We are honoured to bring this story to the stage.  You are welcome to attend either performances on February 29th at 1:30 or 7:00 pm.

Tickets are not required.

Black Excellence Day 2024

What is Black Excellence Day?

As a lead up to Black History Month, Black Excellence Day is a day to rejoice Black history and learn about Black stories, Black art and Black people, and a day to stand in solidarity with Black Canadians.
Black Excellence Day was created by Ninandotoo Society and takes place on January 15th each year.

This year the Ninandotoo Society is encouraging students to wear whatever they would like rather than encouraging the wearing of black shirts as in the past.

January 15th is in honour of the great civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who was born on January 15, 1929.

West Coast Recess and Lunch Program

With the winter weather heading our way, we wanted to remind you of our “West Coast Recess and Lunch” program.  The Fraser Health Authority considers being outdoors and getting fresh air to be the most beneficial for students’ mental and physical wellbeing.

Students will be going outside at recess and lunch (rain, snow or sunshine), so please ensure your child comes to school dressed appropriately for the weather (please see suggestions below):

Being prepared for the weather – we encourage students to:

  • Wear a raincoat or warm winter coat
  • Wear rain/snow boots
  • Wear rain/snow pants
  • Bring an umbrella
  • Wear a hat and gloves
  • Have a change of clothes (including socks and extra shoes) to be kept at school in case students get wet

Thank you for helping to keep your children warm and dry.
