Thanks to all involved for supporting our Indigenous Leadership and Social Justice students in this act of Reconciliation. 💜
Arden's grade fives participated in the CARVE program which is sponsored by Brian McClean, Thrifty Foods, and the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation. It is an opportunity for the community to bring joy to seniors through a display of carved pumpkins. Half of our pumpkins were brought to The Views, and the other half to Cumberland Lodge.
On October 20, Huband Park Elementary School hosted Canada's first ever Downie-Wenjack Breakout Box game with Bobbi Carter's grade 5 class. Students learned the story of Chanie Wenjack while using clues from his story to unlock the Boxes. The Downie-Wenjack Legacy Schools Foundation promotes reconciliation and provides learning materials for schools that foster awareness about residential schools in Canada. This is the first Breakout game inspired by the story of Chanie Wenjack in the country.
On November 3, 2021, all grade 9 students from Lake trail Community School and Cumberland Community School will be able to participate in “Take Our Kids to Work Day”. For more information and access to registration opportunities please check out The Learning Partnership’s webpage.
The SD71-School Cycling Program has been in full swing for grade 4/5 students across the district. Thank you to the Comox Valley Cycling Coalition for all their volunteers and expertise.
Thank you to the Glacier Alliance Club for their kind donation. Through collecting food and donations at meetings, the Glacier Alliance Club chose to support School District 71 students, and our breakfast, lunch and healthy snacks programs in our local schools. We are very grateful.
Huband Park students raised money last year to pay for a rainbow crosswalk to celebrate diversity and welcome all to our school. Thank you to Derek from maintenance for his creativity!
