Encounters with Canada is our country’s largest and foremost youth forum! Every week of the school year, 120 to 148 teens from across Canada, aged 14 to 17 years, travel to Ottawa. While there, they discover their country through each other, learn about Canadian institutions, meet famous and accomplished Canadians, explore exciting career options, develop their civic leadership skills and live an extraordinary bilingual experience. For more information, visit the Career Centre or visit their website.
The world is changing, and we need to ensure our kids have the skills they need to succeed in a changing world. Technology and innovation are reshaping society—and the future. That is why the Ministry of Education is updating British Columbia’s curriculum—an update based on solid research, classroom successes from around the world, extensive consultations with teachers and education leaders in BC.
During the 2015/16 school year, the Ministry of Education introduced draft new curriculum for Kindergarten to Grade 9. That curriculum will be fully implemented in all public and independent schools in September 2016. They are also bringing in new curriculum for Grades 10 to 12. For the 2016/17 school year, teachers have the option to use the draft 10 to 12 curriculum in their classrooms. At the same time, the Ministry is also updating the graduation program and provincial assessment. Please download the following documents for more information and answers to questions that you might have.
This year, Fort St. John is hosting the BC Performing Arts Provincial Festival. It is a 4 day long event which encompasses music and band of all sorts, voice, speech, and dance. Each event is being held at a different venue around town (you name the church and it’s probably going on there!). So far, with two festivals to go, There will be close to 400 competitors coming to FSJ from June 1st-4th. That being said, they are in need of volunteers to help at the event tables to make sure the competitors have two original pieces of music/scripts. If you’re interested in volunteering or know someone who would be willing to help out, email Connie DeFosses directly at email@example.com.
