Welcome to Kindergarten

We are very excited to invite our 2023/2024 kindergarten students and families to our Welcome to Kindergarten event! Activities will be in a station format where families and students will have opportunities to play and be involved in various hands-on experiences. Our new students will play in the gymnasium, hear a story from our librarian and visit a kindergarten classroom.

Event date: Wednesday, May 24th 

Time: 9:30 – 11:00

Location: School gymnasium


Bike Program (Grade 3-5)

We are very excited to once again have the HUB Cycling Program involved in our school to support bike safety. This 2 day program supports both practical knowledge and learning in our classrooms as well as learning about safety while riding bikes.

Good Thing Happened Today

We had such an exciting and fun filled month of learning. These are just a few highlights of our April learning:

  • Lacrosse in schools (supported by New Westminster Parks and Recreation and the New Westminster Salmonbellies Lacrosse Association)
  • The Planetarium Dome (This amazing dome came to our school. We all had a chance to experience what is feels like to travel through space and learn more about our solar system)
  • Hume Park – whole school field trip
  • Bees, caterpillars and salmon
  • Planting our garden
  • Eggstravaganza
