Welcome to the 2017/2018 school year at North Island Secondary School.
The first day of classes will be Wednesday, September 6, 2017. Classes start at 8:50 a.m. and finish at 12:30 p.m.
Students will find a homeroom list posted outside of the front office. They are to go to their homeroom first thing and will receive information and instructions from their homeroom teachers.
Buses and ferry are set up to co-ordinate with the hours for the first day of school. All other school days start at 8:50 a.m. and finish at 3:25 p.m., except for Fridays, which start at 8:50 a.m. and finish at 1:50 p.m.
Students wishing to change any of their classes, must sign up on a list in the front office, and our Advisor, Ms. Nina Mitchell, will find students in the class that is listed on their current student schedule.
We are all looking forward to seeing our students return on Wednesday, September 6th, 2017 at 8:50 a.m. until 12:30 a.m.
Students will be attending their homeroom to receive copies of their schedules and locker assignment, attend a brief assembly, and then run through a rotation of their classes. Thursday, September 7th will be a regular school day, with classes starting at 8:50 a.m. and finishing at 3:25 p.m.
Your son’s/daughter’s timetable for the 2017-2018 school will be mailed out on Aug 25th. It will also be given to them first thing Wednesday morning in their homeroom. Teachers will also be letting students know what specific school supplies will be needed during the first week of classes.
We invite students and their parents to come find their lockers and classes once they receive their schedule in the mail. The school will be open August 28th -September 1st with our Advisor Mrs. Mitchell available on August 31st.
Many factors go into scheduling students, including the choices students made on their course selection sheets, teacher availability and province wide mandated composition requirements. We are excited to be able to maintain our academic course offerings, offer new courses, and maintain many elective options at our school. The 2017-2018 school year also continues with redesigned K–9 curriculum and will be transitioning to the new 10-12 curriculum. More information can be located at https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/.

We hope we have answered most questions you may have, but if not, please feel free to call the school between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. If you wish to discuss your son’s/daughter’s timetable, please contact the school at 250-956-3394 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment with an advisor.
