To all Breakers

We hope your first week went well and you are ready for a successful school year.

Thank you for your patience as we go through course change forms. Counsellors will continue to make course changes next week and see Grade 8-12 students with regards to their timetable.   Please wait until you are called down to the Counselling Centre.

Welcome Back Breakers!!

We hope you had a great summer and are looking forward to a new school year!

School begins on Tuesday, September 8th for all students with an assembly in the gym. After the assembly students will be dismissed to their homeroom.

Grade 8’s @ 12:30 pm

Grade 9 and 10 @ 9:00 am

Grade 11 and 12 @ 10:30 am

This year, due to the lateness in the timetable building we will begin to see Grade 12’s only on Tuesday, September 8th and Wednesday, September 9th. We will also see students with incomplete schedules, or new students.

As in previous years, grade 8 to 11 students should complete a course request change forms. These forms will be available from your homeroom teachers. Completed forms should be returned to the main office and we will work as quickly as we can to process it.

Please note: Course request change forms will be accepted until 3:30 pm on Thursday, September 10th.

See you next week,

The Counsellors

TVR’s and Unofficial Transcript of Grades

Hello Grads,

We understand that there are errors on some of your TVR’s.

In order to ensure that your universities/colleges are receiving the correct marks, we are asking you to review your TVR and Unofficial Transcript of Grades on the BC Ministry Website.

All courses and grades should be carefully checked, as well as your ability to complete graduation requirements.

If you see an error in any of your information, please print out these documents and circle the mistakes, and then see your counsellor.

We know that this is a stressful time of year and we are here to support you.
