    Inkwell Writers Showcase

    Grade 12 student Holly Tipper created and organized a writer's showcase for her CLC 12 Capstone project.  It was a great success and provided an opportunity for student writers to showcase their work and talk about the writing process.  This is bound to be a new tradition at Parkland!

    Moosehide Campaign and BC Lions Be More than a Bystander
    by Carol Gribling - Wednesday, 17 February 2021, 1:35 PM
     

    Parkland combined two powerful campaigns into one great day of awareness.  The Moosehide Campaign is a grassroots movement of Indigenous and non-Indigenous men and boys who are standing up against violence towards women and children.  The BC Lions Be More than a Bystander Campaign is designed to break the silence around gender-based violence by providing tools, language, and practical ideas about how to be more than a bystander.  Thank you to our amazing male student role models who introduced the presentation to classes.

    Mr. Honer's Science 9 class helped clear away invasive ivy as part of their place-based learning project.  Parkland is so lucky to be mere metres from both the forest and the ocean!
