Terry Fox Walk

 Permanent link
Today students of all ages walked together through the neighbourhood in support of cancer research. Our grade 4/5 class led by Mrs. Hersey inspired us and taught us that "We are Terry Fox". Through a rap, video and cheers the 4/5 class helped the rest of the SIB students understand the purpose behind our walk. A great job was done by all. Thank you to all who came to walk with us, cheered us along our route and donated to cancer research. Well done Knights!

Peanut Alert!

 Permanent link

We have several students in the school at a variety of grade levels who have severe allergies to peanut and/or nut products. For these students, contact with peanuts/nuts can be life threatening. A nut allergy is difficult to control, because it can be transmitted by a child with just a trace of peanut oil on his or her hands touching a desk or drinking fountain with which the allergic child comes in contact. Thank you for your help in keeping our children healthy and safe, by not sending peanut products to school.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Alternative Soy Products, which are designed to look, smell and taste like peanut butter are thought to create safety concerns for those with nut allergies and are also to be avoided.
