South Canoe School Opening -Approved by Agricultural Land Commission
Today we received the much anticipated approval from the Agricultural Land Commission for South Canoe to be opened as a school site for September 2018. South Canoe has an active website (https://sca.sd83.bc.ca) which will be updated regularly with new information.
Shortly we will be announcing the principal and then posting teaching and support staff positions and begin the process of hiring staff. We thank you for your patience while we awaited final approval. We look forward to a truly unique and excellent educational opportunity for your child(ren).
I would also like to thank the many great people that have worked hard to make this a reality on our district, district staff, parents, community members, South Canoe community and many more. In particular, I would like to acknowledge the excellent work of the Outdoor Learning Committee who started work on this project two years ago, and have put in countless hours of hard work. Outdoor Learning Committee members are: Amanda Bowlby, Ceren Caner, Emily Styles, Adam Barraball, Chris Stromgren, Susan Brown, Kira Limber, Stacy Morrison, Irene LaBoucane, Glen Overgaard and Isabelle Gervais.
Finally a thank you to our Superintendent, Peter Jory and Trustee, Mike McKay for supporting this initiative. Looking forward to welcoming the first students ever to the Outdoor Learning Program at South Canoe in September.
