Bert Bowes Design Day

On Thursday April 12th, Bert Bowes teachers Morgan Bawtree, Rheanna Morris-Richert, and Shelbi Wildeman were the driving force behind our second Design Day of the year. Design Day is a half-day, activity-based morning that provides students an opportunity to participate and be a driver in the “Maker Way” of thinking and being. Below are some pictures that capture the energy and enthusiasm of the day. We wrapped up Design Day with the “Alien Pop Sphero Showdown” in the gym Thanks to all Staff and Bert Bowes Bulldogs!


Recycling in the Community

Madame Nicole and her grade 7 French Immersion class have been drivers of spreading education and imitating action around recycling at Bert Bowes and throughout the Fort St. John Community. They spent the weekend at the Trade Show. We are so proud to call them Bert Bowes Bulldogs!

New Language and Cultural Studies/Travel Course Information


As you may be aware, changes in the BC curriculum have created a need to replace courses, such as Planification 10 which will no longer be in place beginning next year.  As a result, we have an opportunity to develop new courses which will both address language course offering requirements for French Immersion students and provide unique opportunities for students in this programme to exercise their French language skills in an exciting and meaningful way.
On April 4, 2018, we will be hosting a Parent information meeting to discuss a new Language and Cultural Studies/Travel course to be offered in the 2018-2019 school year at North Peace Secondary School.  We welcome all parents/guardians of current Grade 9/10/11 French Immersion students to attend this meeting on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, at 6:30 pm in the Common Space at École Central Elementary.
Please feel free to contact Lynne Côté-Aubin ( should you have any questions.
