IMG_4165 IMG_4164_2 IMG_4166

Today, students from the AVID class held a fundraiser to financially support their field trips to Post Secondary Schools in the spring.  Many teachers and admin were on hand for the event which turned out to be quite a messy-good-time!  Raising just over $400, the students have raised enough to pay for their flights and accommodation,. however, they are still fundraising for other aspects of the trip.  They are still looking for financial support from corporate/non-corporate sponsors.  Anyone interested in helping out can contact the office at 250-785-4429!

Why should a student get involved in AVID?

  • AVID facilitates student access to rigorous curriculum by building skills in Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR).
  • The goal of AVID is to see students continue their education into postsecondary (colleges, technical institutes or universities).
  • AVID students receive training on how to strategically ask the right questions and how to help their peers as AVID tutors by using sound questioning techniques. This in turn helps them.
  • AVID students also serve as role models. Oftentimes, they return to the program as special guest speakers, teaching younger AVID students about life at post-secondary.
These are only some of the reasons; please click the attached files to learn more.
