Pemberton Public Health will be offering catch-up immunizations to grade 3 students who may have missed their routine immunizations over the last couple of years, namely those who missed their Kindergarten vaccines or need to catch up on any other missed/delayed vaccines.
There are several catch up clinics booked throughout November at the health center.
Parents will be able to book appointments online through Jane App this year at the following link: https://pembertonpublichealth.janeapp.com/

We will work with our PAC to continue the conversation on how to use this fund (within the above criteria) to best support those students and families experiencing financial hardship.

Take a Tour Through BC’s Redesigned Curriculum
Today we live in a state of constant change. It is a technology-rich world, where communication is instant and information is immediately accessible. The way we interact with each other personally, socially, and at work has changed forever. Knowledge is growing at exponential rates in many domains, creating new information and possibilities. This is the world our students are entering.
British Columbia’s new curriculum was redesigned to respond to this demanding world our students are entering, to develop new models, the Ministry consulted with experts in the field. They suggested that to prepare students for the future, the curriculum must be learner-centered and flexible.
All areas of learning are based on a ‘Know-Do-Understand’ model to support a concept-based competency-driven approach to learning. Three elements, the Content (Know), Curricular Competencies (Do), and Big Ideas (Understand) all work together to support deeper learning.
Core Competencies (Thinking, Communication, and Personal & Social) underpin the curricular competencies in all areas of learning. They are sets of proficiencies that all students need to develop in order to engage in their learning. Watch the video below to learn more.
To help support learning across environments, EASE K–7 lessons have been adapted for use by parents and caregivers to help children manage worries and everyday anxiety at home.
