Push up Time

Mr. Beckingham and Simon have developed a day-end ritual of doing pushups prior to Simon jumping on the bus. Their technique is impeccable!

Nicely done!

Pink Shirt Day

VP, Mr. Mark Sauer, Office Assistant, Mrs. Luba Arduin and Mr. H getting set for Pink Shirt Day. We feel that every day should be an anti-bullying day.

Back at it...

I was out of the loop regarding technology when I had my medical leave for my hip surgery.

It is time for me to resume some of my previous activities, which includes blogging periodically.  I hope to provide some insight as to some of the things that are happening at Chatelech Secondary School, as well as our greater school community.

The Eagle's Eye (Issue 7, January 2018) has some excellent information about some of these activities. I will see if I can get an electronic copy of the this student paper to post.  One of the articles is about two of our Grade 10 students who had a chance to go to Ottawa, as part of Encounters with Canada-- great stuff!

Be Bear Aware

For your information we had a mother bear and two cubs on the back field today. We just want everyone to be bear aware and please keep your distance and do not get between the mother and cub.

Students were learning how to use bunson burners when I visited Ms. Liddicoats classroom this past week. They are getting the hang of things! :)

School Startup & PAC Meeting

The 2017-2018 academic year is upon us and the school start-up has gone very well.  Our administrative team (M & M) have been enjoying our new crop of grade 8 students and our Grad class has shown some excellent leadership to start the year.

Our Student Council organized a pep rally/welcome assembly, which was great. Our Terry Fox Run was also very successful. Thank you to Mr. Beckingham and his Leadership class, along with our PE Staff.

We have some of our Grade 8 students participating in an Adolescent Health Survey today. The research is being done in conjunction with UBC and the McCreary Foundation.

We had a good PAC Meeting last night and the turnout was pretty good. Our PAC provides us with some much needed support throughout the year.  The only fundraising that they do is the Hot Lunch Program, which is only running 3 days a week, ay present- (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday). We have had issues getting enough parent volunteers so we do not have hot lunch on Monday and Friday.

We have up to 500 people signed up for the Chatelech2Go app, which is awesome. Students and parents can use this as another communication tool.

I hope that everyone has had a good start to their autumn. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and then it'll be our Provincial Pro-D Day (Oct. 20th) and then our Halloween Extravaganza.

I trust that parents and guardians will contact the school with any questions or concerns.

We look forward to another outstanding year at Chatelech Secondary School.

All the best,

Mr. H
