The Grade 10 Bamfield excursion returned from another great trip this year. The students had great weather as they explored, by land and water, the surrounding areas of Bamfield, on the west side of Vancouver Island. Through hiking, fishing, boating and touring, the students were exposed to the wonders of the island - including humpback whales, salmon, ling cod, eagles, seals and sea lions. While on the trip, students collected pictures and videos to be used in presentations for Individuals and Societies, Design, Science and English. Please feel free to look up #sjsbamfield2016 on social media for pictures of the students experiences and stay tuned for their documentary film about the trip.
Over the course of the past three weeks, Grade 6 students learned about the United Nations' 17 Global Goals, which they hope to achieve by 2030. The United Nations believes these goals are the most important international issues that they hope to solve or improve on. They consist of many different goals, such as poverty, clean water and sanitation, peace and justice, etc. We've decided to first focus on Global Goal 5, Gender Equality.
The annual Terry Fox run took place on Thursday and it was another amazing turn out. This year, as we celebrate our 30th year, we recognize that the Terry Fox run is a part of our school's history and tradition.
