    SOGI Information!!!

    Hello BEST families!

    SOGI 1 2 3 has launched new SOGI 1 2 3 Parent Videos that address questions about SOGI 1 2 3 and SOGI-inclusive education in schools. The videos are designed for parents and family members to view and learn about SOGI 1 2 3 in various grade-levels. The goal of the videos is to debunk some of the common misinformation in the media and to support parents in their understanding of SOGI-inclusive education.  Student safety and wellness is a priority for the Ministry in its efforts to improve student outcomes. There is an informative Parent SOGI-Inclusive Education PowerPoint, and two new videos - one for Elementary parents and one for Secondary parents. Other Student Wellness and Safety resources can be found here.

    BEST events!

    Several important events happening this week! Today we enjoyed the Axis Theatre production of "Robinson Crusoe." Really well done. Also, the "Let's Play" wheelchairs have arrived for our students; allowing them to experience movement in a wheelchair (Most really seem to enjoy and learn from this!) The Kamloops Track and Field club was here this week - as a kick off to Track and Field season - instructing our grades 4-6 students in Shot Put, Triple jump, and High jump. We've also - thanks to Brock Middle school (Who applied for the grant!) - been given a composter for the school! You will see it right out front. The students will be learning how to help keep our environment healthy by composting in our classrooms/school. Lastly, when we can, we've been playing some ping pong with our students!
