New Grad Program Information NIght
by Justin Devries - Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 3:13 PM

If you have a student currently in grades 8 through 11 come to the theatre at 6:30 PM on Tuesday the 13th for a presentation and Q/A session on what's changing and what's new.  The roll-out of the new curriculum and grad program is in phases across the province and can be quite confusing without an explanation.  The session will last less than an hour.  See you there!

BC Winter Games - Volunteer
by Admin. User - Monday, 29 January 2018, 9:17 AM

The BC Winter Games will be (Feb 22-25). WSS is hosting athletes. We are extremely low on volunteer dorm hosts for our accommodations team at WSS! We need dorm host volunteers at all hours of the day. Teens can volunteer, but a parent needs to sign an underage volunteer form - teens would be assigned to work with a responsible adult. 

Duties are general in nature and include maintaining a warm, welcoming and health accommodation site, assist participants with signing in and out, provide general assistance to participants and coaches, as well as general supervision. (Coaches are responsible to monitor participant behaviour.) 

Volunteers can register at the link below. 
IMPORTANT: Under "Volunteer Information", select your 1st choice as "Accommodations - Dorm Management". When you are called by the volunteer coordinator, you would then request Westsyde Secondary.

Planning 10 completion
by Justin Devries - Wednesday, 10 January 2018, 2:56 PM

A reminder that for grade 12 students, the deadline to have planning 10 completed and still be a part of the graduation ceremony is May 4th, 2018.  All students must be 80% completed the course before the end of Spring Break (March 26th) or they will be removed from the official grad attendance list.

For grade 10 and 11 students, the deadline is June 4th.

Any grade 10 or 11 student who does not finish planning 10 before this deadline will be automatically placed into Career Education 10 for the 2018/19 school year.  This new course replaces Planning 10 and is offered in our timetable and not online.
