All Day Kindergarten Survey

The survey is now closed.  Thank you for submitting!




The provincial government announced in the 2009 Speech from the Throne, that all-day Kindergarten will be made available to all BC 5-year olds.  Access to all-day K will be phased in over two years.  For September 2010, 50% of Kindergarten classes in the province will be delivered in an all-day format rather the current half-day model.

Tax Donation to the District Info

Donations received by the School District greater than $20 that meet the criteria per our donation policy are issued a donation tax receipt. The key is that the donation must be received by the school or school district. Donations issued to the PAC are not issued a tax receipt. Schools forward the information of the donor to the Finance Dept together with confirmation that the donation was received by the school and Finance then issues the official receipt.
