 PSS Mountain Bike Team Does Great at Provincials!

Pemberton Secondary School fielded a team of 19 riders at the High School Provincials over the weekend.  For many riders it was there first time at provincials and they placed exceptionally well.  Seasoned veterans Joe Davies, Ella Macdonald, Arriya Kuiper, and Sean Turrin had podium finishes: Joe Davies 1st Senior Cross Country, Ella Macdonald 3nd Senior Cross Country and 2rd Senior Enduro, Arriya Kuiper 3rd Gr 10 Enduro, Sean Turrin 2nd gr10 Enduro.  Shakari King had the best crash(s) of the weekend but bounced right back up again and completed both races.  The grade 8s and 9s all put in exceptional rides.  Well done everyone!  



The PSS Mountain Bike Club would like to sincerely thank the Whistler Cycling Club for their generous donation.  With the funds, the school has been able to purchase a Giant Trance 4.   Students whose families do not have the money to purchase their own bike can now give mountain biking a try and enter a sport they may have been prohibited from experiencing due to cost.  The Whistler Cycling Club frequently rides up the valley on Tuesday evenings and goes out for dinner at one of our local restaurants.  Nicole Jean, Boyd Hargitt and the students of the club are truly grateful that the Whistler Cycling Club thought of our school.  



Dear Parents & Guardians,

Please remind your friends that it is dangerous and illegal to pass a school bus when the red lights are flashing.

Our children’s lives depend on traffic stopping to allow them to safely cross the road.

The fine for passing a stopped school bus is $368.

If you witness a vehicle failing to stop for the flashing red lights, please report the license plate number to the RCMP.

Thank you for your help in keeping our kids safe!

SOGI 1 2 3 has launched new SOGI 1 2 3 Parent Videos that address questions about SOGI 1 2 3 and SOGI-inclusive education in schools. The videos are designed for parents and family members to view and learn about SOGI 1 2 3 in various grade-levels. The goal of the videos is to debunk some of the common misinformation in the media and to support parents in their understanding of SOGI-inclusive education. The SOGI 1 2 3 Parent Videos are available to view and download now on SOGIeducation.org/parents.


 Course Selection for the 2018/19 school year has begun!

Here is the lowdown on the course selection process at PSS…

Over the next couple of weeks, students will be selecting courses that they are interested in taking next year (DONE).  This information will give us data on what courses to offer at PSS. We recently met with each grade to present the courses that could be offered next year at PSS. Students were also given a sheet that included all of the possibilities. You can read up on the many options in our 2018/19 Course Handbook by clicking here .

Our official course selection is now underway. Students will bring their selections home to review with their parents/guardians and return the completed signed form to the school by Monday, June 4th. A finalized timetable for each student will then be sent home.

Please contact the office if you have any questions regarding the process or about our 2018-19 School Timetable and Programs.

Thank you,

Krista Brynjolfson

      Hi Andrea,

      We are currently building our timetable for the 2017/18 school year, and hope to have it up on the website soon. If you are interested in having your son Niklas attend our school next year, I would recommend you contact Brianne Aldcroft at baldcroft@sd48.bc.ca. Brianne is the vice principal of our International program and will be able to answer any of your questions and guide you through the process of attending school in our district.

      Kindest Regards,
