Assessment Week–January 21-24, 2020

Welcome to Assessment Week!

The school calendar changed this year to include a Provincial Assessment Week. The Assessment Week runs from January 21st to January 24th.

Regularly scheduled classes are not in session on these days in order to allow students the time required to complete their Provincial Numeracy and Literacy Assessments.

In order to maximize learning opportunities for all students we have organized a series of sessions throughout the week. Many of the sessions are grade-specific and required for all students while others are designed to provide flexible opportunities to pursue interests, get extra help and complete course and graduation requirements.

Please see the BNSS Assessment Week Schedule 2020 (pictured at left) for details and double-check that your child is aware of their schedule for the week.

All events have also been added to the online calendar & school app.  The locations for many events will be posted in the school or in the Student Bulletin closer to the events.  Please contact your child’s counsellor or Vice Principal if you have any questions or concerns.


Parents of Grade 8 students: Please also review Safeteen parent letter (GRADE 8 STUDENTS) outlining the details of the SafeTeen sessions that all Grade 8s will be attending on the morning of the 22nd.
