We have been working hard to help our students understand the importance of safety when using the internet. The students have watched a video, role played, read articles, had guest speakers, and discussed the importance of keeping themselves safe when using the internet.

Thank you to everyone who supported the Leadership TEAM’s 24 Hour Famine. The final count is not yet in, but we estimate to have tripled our $500 goal. Not only will we be able to feed nearly 4 children for an entire year, but students learned some important lessons about life in other countries and to be grateful for what we have.
Throughout the sleepover we experienced what it would be like to have the responsibility of walking long distances hauling all drinking water for your family, and how to filter water (as the water collected is often not clean). We also learned about other essential resources and how natural disasters, government and the land can dictate what your country receives. Many students chose to sleep in cardboard boxes to experience what it would be like to have to create your own shelter.
Just a reminder that it is Jean’s Day today in support of BC Children’s Hospital. Wear jeans and purchase a pin to for $5 to support BC Kids.
Congratulations to Alwin Holland’s team of Evan Cardinal, Sam Gladue, Leah Harman, Saedra Acko, Ryan Karch, Gavin Forrest, Micha Robinson, Lexi Letawske, and Maddison Nelson who took first place in the school district handgames tournament today!
The staff and students enjoyed both the magic and the circus acts The Great Balanzo entertained us with this morning.
The Alwin Holland Leadership TEAM is participating in a famine on Friday, April 29. We will be experiencing a day in the shoes of those less fortunate by not eating for 24 hours. Students are doing to this to raise money for nutritional, educational and medical needs and to help make a difference.
