Student Learning Survey – Parent Responses

Student Learning Survey 2019/2020

The Provincial Student Learning Survey is unique in its scope, size and usefulness to schools. It gathers information from parents, teachers and students on topics related to school environment, safety, and achievement. The information is used for planning in individual schools and provides a district and provincial perspective.

Early in 2020 (and ending at midnight on April 3rd) the Student Learning Survey will be administered to students in grades 7, any parents of BBMS, and all school staff. We encourage parents to participate in this survey, as the results are important in identifying and celebrating current strengths, as well as determining where the school needs to focus improvement. The surveys contain standard questions for the Province – in addition, questions from the school and/or district that focus on local conditions or issues may be included.

The survey can be completed electronically and can be accessed on the Internet at http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/sat_survey. Any computer with an Internet connection can be used, and access to the e-survey is simple and secure. The survey can be accessed through the link and the Direct access section of the log in page by selecting the school district and school name. Provincial, District and School Reports for previous years can be viewed at the same site under the Results section.
The Student Survey can be completed at home as well using their 9 digit Personal Education Number (PEN). The PEN will be available on their report cards which will be issued on Thursday, March 5th.

BC Winter Games

Bert Bowes played host to the sport of Judo as well as acting as a dormitory for approximately 275 athletes and coaches from both Judo and curling.

Just one example of the wonderful artwork done by Mrs. Wildeman and her students. Many of our visitors commented on how great they were.

Basketball season comes to an end

This past weekend saw both grade 8/9 teams participate in regionals hosted at the North Peace gymnasiums. Both teams finished in 4th place. Thank you to the athletes for being such good ambassadors for our school, thank you to the parents who showed up and cheered them on and a huge thank you to the teachers who gave hours of their time coaching. A special shout out to Mrs. Bell, our Athletic Director, for organizing both our home tournament and regionals. Great people make for a great school community!
