Week-at-a-Glance April 29-May 3

This is best viewed on a desktop or laptop.


The WITS Program was developed at the University of Victoria to help children deal with social issues. Pebble Hill staff and students have adopted the program and it is becoming our common language at the school.

The S in WITS stands for:

Seek help! This is very important. All children deserve to feel safe and that the adults in their lives will help if needed. Seek help! This is very important. All children deserve to feel safe and that the adults in their lives will help if needed. If the first person you ask doesn’t help you to fix the problem – keep asking for help from someone new.

Student Learning Survey 2023/2024 – Parent Survey – Have your say!

The Provincial Student Learning Survey is unique in its scope, size and usefulness to schools. It gathers information from parents/guardians/caregivers, teachers, and students on topics related to school environment, safety, and achievement. The information is used for planning in individual schools and provides a district and provincial perspective. Early in 2024 the Student Learning Survey will be given to students, their parents/guardians/caregivers, and all school staff. We encourage parents/guardians/caregivers to participate in this survey, as the results are important in identifying and celebrating current strengths, as well as determining where the school needs to focus improvement. The surveys contain standard questions for the Province – in addition, questions from the school and/or district that focus on local conditions or issues may be included.

The survey can be completed electronically and can be accessed on the Internet at http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/sat_survey.

Any computer with an Internet connection can be used, and access to the e-survey is simple and secure. The survey can be accessed through the link with or without an anonymous logon code by selecting the school district and school name where your child attends school. Provincial, District and School Reports for previous years can be viewed at the same site under the Results section. The e-survey site will be open until May 3rd.
