Is All About

We are honoured to live, learn, play and work on the unceded territories of the Skwxwú7mesh Nation and the shíshálh Nation.

Vision: We are a community engaged in lifelong learning and educational excellence.

Mission: We support and inspire each student to experience joy and fulfillment in realizing their potential as a knowledgeable, confident, and contributing citizen in the global community.

Affirmation: The Board of School District 46 affirms its commitment to Indigenous Peoples and Reconciliation by building relationships and deepening understanding of Indigenous history, worldviews, and ways of knowing.

Approximately 3,300 students are enrolled in nine elementary and four secondary schools and supported by 600 dedicated staff.

The Sunshine Coast of British Columbia is located 30 kilometres northwest of Vancouver and stretches 96 kilometres along the picturesque shores of Georgia Strait. Reached by a 40-minute ferry ride across Howe Sound from Horseshoe Bay, the Coast offers a wide range of recreational and educational activities for students and their families.

Teacher librarians are working closely with teachers and students running bookclubs, creating Padlets, delivering books, and at Halfmoon Bay, Teacher Librarian Robyn Anderson paired up with Grade 1 teacher Lauren Taylor to create a mystery You Tube video with clues to solve for students when learning online at home! Good luck and happy sleuthing!
