As most of you know, British Columbia has a redesigned K-12 curriculum that is being phased in over the next three years. As a result, the Ministry of Education had announced a plan to support teachers in implementing this curriculum. It requires all school districts to schedule ten new hours of teacher training time or two additional non-instructional days, within the current 2015-2016 school year.
The District’s 2015/16 school calendar has now been amended and the following dates approved as additional non-instructional days: Tuesday, April 26 and Friday, May 13.
During the month of February, all Burnaby Schools will be accepting registrations for the 2016-17 school year. Registration are NOT based on a “first come, first served” basis, so it does not matter if you register Feb. 1st or Feb. 26th (although it’s always a good idea to register early in case you forget any necessary forms). Please visit our Registration Page for forms and information regarding registration at
Buckingham registration times are:
- 9:15 to 10:15 am
- 11:00 to 11:45 am
- 1:15 to 2:45 pm
No appointment necessary
Our wonderful Ms. Dumont and amazing Ms. Salter have been working tirelessly on our upcoming production “Party in a Pear Tree”. The performances will be happening on Tuesday, Dec. 15th @ 1:30 p.m. and Wednesday, Dec. 16th @ 7:00 p.m. Come see Ms. Dumont’s final Christmas Concert performance before she sets sail into retirement!
Ticket requests were sent home and are distributed on a first come, first served basis, so get your requests in right away.
We look forward to seeing our families there to watch and support our students. We recommend that families bring a non-perishable food bank donation or grocery store gift card when attending the performances.
Welcome to our new website. As with any new technology, there might be a little “implementation dip” in which we still work out some kinks and navigate slowly as we get used to the new and improved system of communication. Hopefully you find it useful, but please be patient.
