Memory Project – North Peace Secondary School
The Memory Project (www.memoryproject.org) is a youth arts organization dedicated to fostering intercultural understanding and kindness through the medium of art.

Monthly “Art Hub” for Staff:
SD60 teachers, Alex Richards (with support from the PRNTA) and Brenda Birley, will be hosting a monthly ‘Art Hub’ in the Boardroom at the Board Office. This is open to any and all staff district-wide. Wednesday, October 25 was their first get-together. Brenda led the activity (watercolour!) and Alex provided some resources for the classroom based on the Social Justice theme of the month, which is Mental Health and Well Being.
Following is the poster for the upcoming session on Wednesday, November 29:

Equity Scan in SD60
Dr. Kearney Middle School
Mr. Boissonneault and students from Dr. Kearney Middle School organized a haunted house fundraiser for the FSJ Women’s Resource Centre, which turned out to be a spooktacular event!
The attention to detail, from the decorations to the spooky costumes worn by the student actors, was truly remarkable.
It was a fantastic spooky experience that successfully raised funds for a great cause!
Chris Nock, Principal, Dr. Kearney Middle School
Six of our SD60 students attended the CLVP (Children’s Low Vision Project of BC) Low-Vision Clinic in October with their parents.
Students checked out room viewing systems, different magnification devices, and monoculars. Many of the low-tech devices were lent to students to take home or to school. The optometrist and ophthalmologist were able to spend time with our Learning Services team, answering questions and discussing the student’s eye condition.
Thank you to SD 60 and PRCVI (Provincial Resource Center for the Visually Impaired) for making this happen!
