As such, Windebank Elementary is a "Nut Aware Zone.” Please help us keep our school safe by not sending or bringing any nuts or nut products (including “trace amounts,” “may contain…,” “processed in a facility where there may have been contact with…” product labelling) into the school. We count on your continued support to help keep our school safe.

BC Curriculum & Reporting Changes

Currently, there is a lot of change taking place with the direction of learning in British Columbia. Part of this change has to do with the B.C. curriculum and the change from outcome focuses to competency based focus. Parents should be watching and listening to what is happening by visiting the ministry websitehttps://curriculum.gov.bc.ca and getting some background information on what these changes might look like. Check out the faq page that gives parents some rationale for the changes in the curriculum.

As schools change to the new curriculum in September 2016, there is much excitement that teachers will be able to dig deeper into learning making it more meaningful, engaging and connected to the real world through skills that students can apply as they grow up and become citizens in our society.

Note from Minister of Education

Correspondence has been received from Minister Bernier of the Ministry of Education regarding engaging parents on student reporting. There will be community meetings scheduled in 10 communities across the Province over the coming months for parents to ask questions and share input. This correspondence has been sent to all school Principals for sharing with their school communities at their earliest convenience.
