I did not attend this Ed Policy meeting as the District’s Well Ahead Ideation event was held at the same time. SD61 is one of 6 BC School Districts participating in this 6 year initiative. An all day session was held on Tuesday November 3 by invitation., to more fully explore the ideas generated. I did not attend.
The ideas will be posted here at some point: ideas.wellahead.ca

At least Vancouver School District and Abbotsford School District have received the same offer from Paperny Entertainment. Abbotsford has declined. Paperny Films, a Vanocuver based film production studio, was adquired by Media One in July 2014. “Entertainment One Ltd., also known as eOne, is an international media corporation operating in Canada, the U.S., the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Benelux, Spain, France, Germany, Scandinavia, and South Africa.”
If this Aviation course carries at the Board, this will be SD61’s 156th BAA course. The BC Education curriculum is encouraging such community initiated eduction “partnerships” in education. This course is a partnership with the Victoria Flying Club. Costs for training for a Private Pilot License is about $10,536 (fuels costs from 2011).
