Core Competencies Reflections


A reminder to students and parents that Core Competencies reflections are due tomorrow, Friday, June 19th.  This should take a total of 15-30 minutes to complete.  All students in the Richmond School District are required to complete the Core Competency Self-Reflection Forms as part of the BC Curriculum.  We ask parents and guardians to take some time to discuss this reflection with their child.  Parents, there is a place for your digital signature at the bottom of the form to indicate that you have read your son/daughter's self-assessment.

Student Feedback Survey: Your Thoughts are Important to Us

In case you have not had a chance to complete this...


As there is still uncertainty of what September will look like,  we wish to be prepared for the possibility that Remote Learning will serve as a part of our instructional practice as we reopen for the new school year.  

Though I think it is fair to say that we have learned a lot over the past months, we need your feedback (what went well, what needs to be improved…. ) so that we are best prepared to support the learning of all.

Please find a short survey that we would ask students to fill out.  Though directed at students we think parents will offer good insight.  We would encourage a family conversation before students complete the form:

Sorry for the short timeline.  As our academic year is coming quickly to a close, we would ask this survey be completed prior to the end of day on Wednesday June 24th.  Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Richmond celebrates 2020 grads by installing commemorative photo stations

From the City of Richmond


Richmond, BC – In an effort to congratulate and support Richmond’s graduating class of 2020, the City of Richmond has installed commemorative signs at picturesque locations throughout the community to serve as backdrops for fun and safe grad photo opportunities. 


“In a year of unprecedented challenge and change, the City of Richmond congratulates the graduates of 2020,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “We hope that adding these commemorative backdrops in some of our City’s most beautiful parks will help to create family memories that last a lifetime.”


The commemorative Grad 2020 signage will be installed at six locations across Richmond:

1.            Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site (5180 Westwater Drive) – along the boardwalk in front of the dock;

2.            Imperial Landing Park (4000 Bayview Street) – east end of Imperial Landing;

3.            Paulik Neighbourhood Park (7620 Heather Street) – Paulik Park garden;

4.            Garden City Community Park (6620 Garden City Road) – north side of the pond;

5.            Middle Arm Waterfront Park (7411 River Road) – east of the UBC Boathouse;

6.            Middle Arm Greenway (6111 River Road) – in front of the volleyball courts.


The signs are part of the larger #RichmondHasHeart campaign, which provides creative opportunities to bring the community, residents and business together during COVID-19.


Grads are reminded to follow public heath guidelines when visiting City parks and taking photos, which includes maintaining physical distancing and avoiding gatherings by limiting the number of people in the group to a max of six at a time. 


Grads are encouraged to share their photos on social media using the hashtag #RichmondHasHeart.
