1.      Principal’s Message


         Christmas Gala:   BC homerooms have had some fun with several “Christmas” related activities including door decorating, a raffle for a gift basket, a clothing drive for the poor, and a Home Room Christmas song fest on December 24.  In the spirit of Christmas we believe it is better and more fun to “give than to receive.”  We hope all students have had fun joining with us in these celebrations.


         New Year’s Gala:  New Year’s gala celebrations are not a Canadian tradition, so our staff look forward to being entertained by our Chinese students and staff on December 31.


2.      Examinations: After the successful completion of our Provincial Examinations in November we are now moving quickly through a short Christmas and New Year’s break toward our two-week exam period in mid-January.  School exams begin on January 12-15. Friday, January 16 and Saturday, January 17, are work days for staff without students as we mark exams, prepare report cards, and prepare for Semester 2 classes which begin on January 19.  During the week of January 19-23 students in Science, Math and English 10 and Socials 11 will write their online British Columbia provincial examinations and will also begin Semester 2 classes.


3.      Report Cards:  Reports will be ready during the week of January 26-30.  It is difficult to judge exactly which day they will be ready due to Power School restrictions. Provincially examinable course marks will be ready in mid-February when released by the BC Ministry of Education.


4.      Semester Two Timetables:  Students in grade 11 have been interviewed by our Academic Advisors, Ms. Chu and Ms. MacDonald regarding courses for semester 2.  Students in grade 10 have had their timetables reviewed.  Students begin semester 2 at the same time as Provincial Exams.  They will be given their timetables in Home Room on January 19.

下学期课程表:11年级学生正在与学术指导教师(Ms. Chu Ms. MacDonald)预约谈话以确定第二学期课程表。10年级学生课表已经确认。

5.      Holiday Homework:  The most important thing for students to do over the February holiday break is to practice their English.  The best way to do this is by reading, but students can also watch English movies, or they can go for tea or coffee with friends and speak English!  Holiday homework will be given to students on or before Friday, January 30.  Note: only core subjects assign homework.
