I’m afraid I don’t have a lot to report in regards to May. I would like to thank Vice-Chair Leech for taking over the helm whilst I was away for the better half of the month. During that time the District of Sechelt hosted the Intergovernmental meeting, to which we were a part. It is always good to be able to share ideas, and to keep the lines of communication open with our fellow elected officials.
Submitted by Vice-Chair Leech: April was a busy month for SD46 trustees with our regular meetings, the District Student Leadership Team forum and the BC School Trustees Association AGM. Trustees are also attending the SCTA and the CUPE collective agreement bargaining meetings. Chair Ruth was also in attendance at the Industry Training Authority Gala on April 9th to acknowledge the work of increasing the numbers of students in these training programs.
While the time between this and the previous board report was short, due to the winter break, it was by no means void of activity. Winter performances and activities were held throughout the district. Unfortunately, with some of the storms, a few concerts were cancelled. Student safety is always our number one priority, and if that means not riding on those roads with parents trying to get to the school, then that’s what that means.
