Education

A community gathers in support of Langley Secondary School

Snipperts from the LSS Community Consultation Meeting – Feb 10, 2015

Approximately 200 people turned out to listen to what everyone had to say about the potential impact that would be seen if Langley Secondary School saw its school close down and it’s community disrupted. There were 6 School Trustees in attendance at the meeting.The following are snippets that were taken from the speeches that various students, teachers and parents had during the meeting that was open to everyone:

Karin – Student:

“We see education as a way to a better future. But Canadian education has not been easy; learning English, supporting themselves, etc.”

Johnathan Dyck, teacher & parent:

“Democracy is more than voting…it is this stuff.”

Shelly Rand, metal teacher, Langley Secondary School:

“I feel education in the trades open many doors for students, such as LSS (Langley Secondary School) can offer. Students need access to these trades.”

It seemed that everyone present at this special meeting was hoping to keep LSS (Langley Secondary School) open or were in support of having LSS represented in their community in some shape or form.

Please check your inbox as I have just sent out details surrounding the literacy/physical education program being proposed by the Langley Rivermen who are interested in becoming involved in elementary schools within our district schools.

There is a literacy component involved as well as a physical education component.

Langley students attend the Rivermen season opener

number oneStudents attend the season opening game of the Langley Rivermen

Lots of fun tonight at the season opening game of the Langley Rivermen. The team lost in the 2nd period of overtime but an amazing game none the less.
The Langley Rivermen are now working with the Langley DPAC in an initiative that encourages our elementary school students to read.  Local players will be arriving at various schools in their hockey bus and in uniform and they will read to and be read by Langley students.

The hockey players will also be playing scrimmage hockey with the kids in school gyms to encourage physical education within the school district of Langley.

Langley DPAC received 1000 FREE hockey tickets to give out to schools in the district to attend the first game of the season. I recognized lots of the kids and PAC members as well.

I am so in love with Frasier, the team mascot. He was very engaging with the kids and was a huge hit with them as well.

More to follow soon on our teaming up with the Langley Rivermen.

Hope to see you guys at the next game as well.
