Good luck to all of the grade 12 Immersion students writing their French Provincial Exam today. Bonne chance mes beaux!


Thank you for an amazing semester!


To all the students I had the privilege to teach or work with, thank you.

To all the staff who supported me and showed me the ropes, thank you.

This experience was a beautiful learning and growing opportunity that I will never forget.

Thanks again!

You will all be missed.

Salad Day Was A Sucess!

Thanks to everyone for taking care of their plants and bringing them into class to cultivate and share. I hope this has inspired you to grow your own food. It is so simple, fun and healthy!

Big thanks to….


Thank you to Simon Piney for presenting at FSS yesterday.  Simon explained how Fernie’s Search and Rescue works as well as how to stay safe this summer while having fun! Thanks again, we learned a lot!


Is coming to FSS on Thursday, May 29th.  Canadian band “Carmanah” will be performing at our school and sharing a presentation on Ocean conservation.  Please watch their promotional tour video and check out their website! You won’t want to miss it!




Will be visiting our outdoor ed. 8/9 classroom June 3rd.  The presentation will cover the following:

– Short video on SAR in BC
– How SAR works in BC
– How SAR works in Fernie
– Typical responses SAR deals with, and how to avoid the dangers initially, and how to help the response if you are involved.
– They will try and cover typical hazards around here for young people: snow, rivers and lakes, hiking, wild animals, wilderness travel.
– They will also talk about additional issues we have dealt with over the years with this age group (illicit trips and bush drives, alcohol, drugs)
– How technology can help
– And provide a few safety handouts (whistles, survival blankets)

Can’t wait!
