Take Your Kids to Work Day

Though many of our grade nine students were away and visiting workplaces, at least one of our staff opened the doors to her world of work for her daughter and one of her friends!  Hopefully all who had the opportunity to be "taken to work," had a meaningful insightful experience.



A Day to Remember....


Each year, as a part of the recognition of Remembrance Day, students are gathered in assemblies and given some time to reflect, remember, and appreciate the sacrifices that so many have made for the freedoms we take for granted each day.  Thanks to Mme Mainville, Mr. Wilson, Mr. Carter, Ms. Freese, and Ms. Vaughan as well as the many students who gave their time, creativity, and talent, to help us all Remember.



Catering Club Hard at Work

A club that gives is not something unusual.  However, part of this club's giving, is directed at our staff.  The Catering Club is hard at work making preparations for our recent staff meeting.  To have so many talented students working hard to allow our staff to have a special snack at staff meetings "almost" makes staff meetings tolerable... "almost." (thanks to Ms. Yau for the photo).

Wolves in the Wall

Our Drama Department led by Mr. Wilson and many of his students had the opportunity this week to perform "Wolves in the Walls" for a theatre full of Whiteside Students.  A short matinee showcased the creative talent and technical behind the stage skills of many of our students.  


Exploring the Core Competencies - From the BC Ministry of Education


From the October 2019 "Learn" Newsletter produced by the Ministry of Education.

The Exploring the Core Competencies videos provide a detailed overview of the key updates to B.C.’s Core Competencies and walk viewers through the new layout of the web pages. In 2019, the Ministry collaborated with teachers to revise and finalize the Core Competencies. Core Competencies are sets of intellectual, personal, and social and emotional proficiencies that all students need to engage in deep, lifelong learning. Along with literacy and numeracy foundations, they are central to B.C.’s K-12 curriculum and assessment system and directly support students in their growth as educated citizens. The finalization process included reviewing feedback received on the draft Core Competencies, re-examining key aspects of the Core Competencies (including definitions, sub-competencies, facets and profiles) and gathering and analyzing additional illustrations that represent how B.C. students from diverse backgrounds and communities are demonstrating their developing competence. The layout of the Core Competencies web pages has also been updated to reflect the final work, to provide more clarity on accessing the new materials, and to address the feedback from the field on the previous drafts.






This video explores the Introduction page on BC’s New Curriculum website, which provides an overview of the three Core Competencies and explains the lifelong development of competence in these areas.







A Core Competency is made up of two or more sub-competencies, each of which contains smaller parts such as facets, profiles and connections. This video reviews the three broad Core Competencies and their sub-competencies and navigates through the Facets, Profiles and Connections tab for one of the subcompetencies.  






Illustrations are examples of how students have demonstrated their developing competence. These examples can include student work samples, student and teacher reflections, interviews, teacher observations, learning stories, photos and videos. This video explores the Illustrations tab of a subcompetency.
