Updated Return to Campus Plan and Exposure Control Plan

The Stage 2 Return to Campus Plan and Exposure Control Plan have been updated and can be found on the Return to Campus page under "My CHS". Sections where we have made updates are highlighted for ease of reference. The update clarifies the provincial government’s guidelines and requirements concerning mask exceptions.

“Register! Register! Register!”: COVID-19 Vaccination Available Everyone Over 12 (Born in 2009 and earlier)

Everyone in the province born in 2009 and earlier (ages 12 and above) is now eligible to register for COVID-19 vaccines. This can be done online (link below), or by calling 1-833-0838-2323, or in person at any Service BC location. Dr Bonnie Henry, at the May 20 news broadcast, described clinics as “family friendly” and invited parents who already have a scheduled vaccination appointment to take their children, aged 12 and up, with them. No appointment is required for children accompanying their parents; however, identification is required and families bringing their unscheduled children should notify clinic staff when they arrive. Even if children are accompanying parents to an existing appointment, parents should still register children using the methods above.

For more information, go to the BC government's how to get vaccinated for COVID-19 website and the Vaccine Update: First dose of COVID-19 vaccine available for youth aged 12–17 from Vancouver Coastal Health

BC Government Launches Foundry BC App

The Province of BC recently announced the launch of the Foundry BC app, which offers young people aged 12 to 24 and their caregivers access to integrated health and wellness services. Visit the Foundry Virtual BC web page to download the app or to access the web portal online.

Measuring, volume, comparison, estimation … it's amazing what you can explore with a few assorted beakers and some sand; just ask the Senior Kindergarten students!

Grade 1 students have been building obstacle courses … for light! Using mirrors, prisms and other transparent objects, they bounced the light from point A to point B, where a target was waiting to catch the beam.

A year without competition doesn’t mean we take a break from training. Grade 5 students spent time practicing ball control during a field hockey session on Kent Field.

Through all kinds of weather, Grade 8 students worked on their Outdoor Education skills. The event was topped off with a frantic game of “Survival”, pitting carnivores, omnivores and herbivores against each other in an epic battle across Kent Field and the woods.

Making the most of some beautiful weather, Grade 11 and Grade 12 students have been enjoying the courtyard, working with acrylic paint, and taking inspiration from what they can see around campus.

International travel might still be limited, but Grade 11 and 12 students found a way to explore religious buildings and sites around the globe. The VR headsets allowed their Social Studies teacher to guide them through several locations as they explored different world religions. See Grade 12 photos on Vidigami. (All parents will have received an invitation to Vidigami in September. If you did not receive the invitation or need support accessing Vidigami, please contact

Congratulations to Grade 11 students, Sophia and Amaara, and Grade 12 student, Allison, for their success in the Reel 2 Reel Film Festival. In the Youth Film Showcase, Sophia’s film The Dreamer won the Best Film Award, Amaara’s film Twilight was a runner up for the Acting Award, and Allison’s film Brain on Fire won the Sound Award.

We gave Grade 12s enough candy to make it through the end of the year (or in some cases, the afternoon). This small treat was one way we’re starting the graduation celebration of these extraordinary students. See Grade 12 photos on Vidigami.

Athlete Profile: Katie, Grade 12, Running

While competition is on pause, we want to make sure that the experiences of our athletes are captured and shared. This week, we share thoughts from Katie, Grade 12 to get her take on a school year without competition. Katie does Cross Country, Track and Field, and Volleyball. Though currently recovering from an injury, Katie is looking forward to resuming her running habit as soon as possible.

We asked what she loves most about sport:

For Katie, running is how she connects with herself, friends, family, and the neighborhoods and parks of Vancouver:

“I run a lot with my friends. We go around Stanley Park or cool places in Vancouver. I run with my dad, my sister—whoever wants to run. During the pandemic, we’d do family run-walks together; now we have “Run Cult” with some teachers and students at school as well. I find it relaxing. I used to need music to run but now I just find it more peaceful without.”

And we wanted to know what was hardest:

“I find it really mentally challenging—staying motivated, especially when school gets super busy, is hard. All November for example, I did not run and I remember it feeling very gross. Through injury, I’ve also learned that strength training is important. It’s not just the running or the immediate high from that. You’ve got to build up strength through cross training, or it will get you. It’s important to be balanced in my school-life balance, and in my body as well.”

Now that the Grouse Grind is open and the weather is good, Katie and her friends hope to add a hike a week into their schedules!

We loved these insights for sport, and beyond and we hope this brings you some Crofton Falcon Pride! Look for more next E-Calls. #BringItHome

Courage, Creativity, Citizenship
