Sea View Holiday Celebration Feast

 On December 9th, Sea View celebrated Term 1 student learning achievement  with a holiday themed feast.  As a recognition of the strong connections to community that Sea View maintains, staff and families shared in celebrating the progress of all learners.  In addition to enjoying a fabulous meal, students each received a reward package recognizing their accomplishments and encouraging future learning.  Congratulations to all students at Sea View on your learning successes!

Lieutenant Governor's Visit

  Students from Alert Bay School and  the T’lisalagi’lakw School had the opportunity to meet Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon and take a tour of the HMCS Calgary.  The students spent time talking with her, sharing their interests in sports and fishing and asking questions about the HMCS Calgary.

Cape Scott Windfarm

On May 6th twenty students were given a tour of the Cape Scott Windfarm.  After a two hour bus drive, students spotted an enormous wind turbine - the first of 55 currently on the site.  Gordon gave an excellent tour explaining the time it took to bring the project to life and the logistics of moving these enormous turbines to their current location.  Students had numerous questions and were thrilled to view the windfarm that they have heard so much about.

Outdoor Pursuits

 This year, North Island Secondary School is offering its first ever Outdoor Pursuits junior elective course being taught by Greg Muirhead. The course is designed to cover introductory elements in the pursuit of life long recreational activities and introduce students to some new activities.
Jumping back into the school year, and without wasting any time, the class took full advantage of the weather. Mr. Muirhead's Outdoor Pursuits students spent a beautiful fall afternoon exploring some of the local trails in Port McNeill.
