What's New @ SD41
When the students in many of our schools learned of the devastation of the two earthquakes in Nepal, they wasted no time opening up their hearts and their piggy banks. Student-led fundraisers at more than 10 schools included school-wide runs, food sales of samosas, freezies, grilled cheese sandwiches and chocolate covered marshmallows with bananas, and straight out collections. In total they raised more than $15,000. Burnaby South students led the cause, having to increase their goal at least three times and in the end this school alone raised more than $10,000!!!

Two new state-of-the-art Industry Connect Programs designed to provide students with more opportunities, are coming soon to Burnaby School District – possibly as early as Fall 2015. Both are options for grade 11 & 12 students from across the District. The Robotics & Automation program will be offered at Alpha Secondary. Health Sciences will be at Moscrop, with some classes taking place at BCIT where students will have a chance to learn on the latest medical technology. Interested? Talk to your school’s career advisor today. LEARN MORE

The District is proud of a unique literacy tradition that began in 1985 and continues to make its mark, the WORDS Writing Project. Congratulations to our Burnaby schools students (K to gr 12) who were selected for publication, it the 2014/15 anthology, Words Move Us, and special thanks to their families, teachers and principals for supporting their literacy journey.
