    The Ministry of Education's Expect Respect & A Safe Education resources are now available online. Along with the reporting tool, the erase site includes information about bullying and violence prevention, online safety, mental well-being, substance use, and sexual orientation and gender identity. These resources were created following extensive consultation with students, parents, and educators throughout the province. 

    For more information erase and school safety programs, contact your child's teacher or principal.

    Rayleigh Christmas Hampers
    by Tiffany Hawkins - Monday, 10 December 2018, 8:01 AM

    Dear Parents and Caregivers,

    As a school community, we are collecting items for three food hampers with the help of staff, students and parents. Once the hampers are created, we will donate the hampers to families in Rayleigh.

    We will collect the items in a unique way. Here is how it will work:

    • There will be a decorated Christmas Tree at the front door.

    • Hung on the Christmas tree, there will be paper ornaments with a hamper item listed on them.

    • Each person (staff, student or parent) who would like to donate

      • takes an ornament off the tree,

      • purchases the item,

      • returns it to the school.

    • When all items are removed off the tree, we will start again for the second hamper. And, keep going.

    The Rayleigh Pub has also informed us that they will also be putting together a hamper for one an addition family. So, there will be 4 hampers in total! Thank you to the Rayleigh Pub!

    This Christmas Tree Project will be running from December 5 – December 18, 2018. If you would like to donate, please visit our Christmas Tree at the front door. If you are unable to come into the school, contact the office and we will let you know what is needed.

    If you would like to nominate a family for one of these hampers, please contact me by email (thawkins@sd73.bc.ca) or phone the school. If we get more families brought forward than hampers, we will draw names out of a basket.

    Thank you for supporting the Rayleigh Community!
