Congratulations to the Senior Girls B2 Squad for their  Tournament Win (TW) in Peace River last weekend. Trophies are on display — awesome!

The 2024-25 proposed school calendar was developed in accordance within the requirements of the School Act and consultation with Peace River South Teachers Association. The calendar reflects the current collective agreement language around the start, end and break times with special approval for the two-week spring break.  

The school calendar regulation requires that a board must make publicly available a school calendar that it proposes to submit to the minster. The consultation period allows for the public to provide input on the school calendar before it is adopted by the Board of Education and submitted to the Ministry of Education by March 31st.

Feedback must be made in writing to Jan Proulx (japroulx@sd59.bc.ca) before March 1, 2024 to be considered.
