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?

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. We also appreciate the generous support of our community partners, the Rotary Club of Burnaby, Royal Printers, the Burnaby Now and McDonalds. The anthology will be in school libraries and Burnaby public libraries soon – or read it online.
