Greetings students and families,

Spring Break is upon us. Last year, we all went for Spring Break, and we were all caught off guard by the pandemic, which kept us from coming back and still creates great challenges in navigating through the school system. What we can learn from last year is that there are no guarantees about the future. Anything can happen. But that has always been true, so really, nothing has changed. Do your best now. Be kind now. Enjoy your friends and family now.

But! Barring any more surprises Spring Break has to offer, here are a few announcements, and a few things we have planned:

We are happy to announce all students registered in GKNS have been issued an iPad for use in the school. We have installed charging stations here at the school, and for now we would like to keep them here. Eventually, they will be available for homework, but we are not ready to send them out into the world just yet. No more shortage of work stations to write an exam or do a project. No more fighting over Chromebooks during AI. We are excited about the things we will be able to do as we learn about using the devices in the school.

April 1st from 12:45pm to 1:45pm, we have arranged for an online student information session for all students from the government’s Safe Schools ERASE program.

We are very happy to announce that Lucy Sager is returning with the Driver’s education program. Lucy will provide support for students looking to get their Learner’s license, as well as for those preparing for their road test. Students of eligible age can participate from April 6-9 from 2:30 until 4:30. Students eligible to write their Learner’s test may write as a group on April 12th in the evening. Time TBA.

The Northern SOGI summit is planned for May 7. Stay tuned after the break for more info on the inspiring speakers and exciting workshops that will be offered (virtually) that day. Students are welcome to attend.

An informal Interim report is being issued. Comments or marks may not have been entered for every student, and the purpose of the report is to communicate if a student has fallen behind, and what can be done to catch up. Please contact the school if you have any questions.

Have a lovely Spring Break. Rest up and enjoy family time together,
Mr. B

What’s new at GKNS? Our new Air Hockey table!
Thank you to the GKNS Travel Club that generously donated a large portion of their funds for this new addition. As we don’t see any travel in the future, the students felt this would be a great way to keep a sense of community going in their home away from home.

Power at the school is restored sooner than expected. There is lot much left in the day, but teachers will be available and students are welcome at 1:45. Unfortunately, busses aren’t running. Please drop off and pick up. ...

Update from BC Hydro is that the estimated time for restored power is 2:25pm. Unless power is restored earlier, have a good weekend. ...
