International Baccalaureate student John Mark Soria wanted to help support victims of the recent typhoons in the Philippines so he created an event which combined amazing Filipino food and a fast paced basketball game. One hundred and sixty guests came to the dinner/basketball event.
A big thank you to the Parkland alumni basketball stars that came back to participate in this event and to all the families for bringing food. A great time was had by all as you can see. Way to go John Mark--great CAS project!
Due to poor weather and scheduling conflicts, the Grad Bottle Drive has been cancelled. It will be rescheduled in the spring. If you have refundables you can still bring them to Island Return It in Sidney (10025 Galaran Rd) and indicate that you would like the funds to go to Parkland Grad 2019. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Congrats to Cooper Langard and Taiga Okamoto who both qualified for Provincials in the Senior Boys Cross Country Race yesterday at Beaver Lake. Cooper was 8th and Taiga was 23rd in a race of 92 boys from across the Island. Jaylene Melling did an amazing job representing Parkland in the Senior Girls Race finishing off a strong first season as a Panther.
Come and join us for the first bottle drive of the school year! We need grade 12s and their parents (drivers with trucks/vans are very helpful) and we need refundables. All proceeds go to the grad class of 2019!!
