Walk and Wheel to School Week Journey is participating in the 2018 Walk & Wheel to School Work from October 1-5. We will be celebrating active travel all week!

Students who walk or wheel (bus, bike, scoot, or skate) all or part way to /from school, will get a sticker to put on our school trip tracking poster. At the end of the week, we will send a picture of our poster to the Capital Regional District (CRD) to show off our active travelling and a chance to win prizes. 

Community Info: 

Grade 6 Immunizations: Watch for immunization consent packages for grade 6 students that will be sent home early in the fall. Students in grade 6 will be offered immunizations in school-based clinics with the consent of a parent(s) or representative. Please contact the local Health Unit at 250-519-3490 and ask to speak with a Public Health Nurse if you have any questions.

We are looking for a few parent volunteers to help with our Immunization clinic on Wednesday October 24th. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Charmaine Campbell at chcampbell@sd62.bc.ca 


Exploratory Fees are still due for some students and request that they send them in before exploratories begin on Thursday Oct 4th


Tea in the Foyer @ recess – all students are welcome to stop by with their mugs and get a cup of herbal tea compliments of Ms. Shannon. If you forget your cup today she will have a disposable one for you!

Skatepark club @ lunch break – You can bring skateboards, scooters, BMX bikes (no mountain bikes) or rollerblades and join this fast paced club.


Lunch- Subway @ lunch. $3.50 per sandwich. Chips and juice boxes also available to purchase. Munch Cards and cash accepted. All proceeds go to Cops for Cancer/Tour de Rock

Cops for Cancer/Tour de Rock – This year Journey is honoured to welcome the Tour de Rock Riders when they pedal into Sooke today. The riders are scheduled to arrive at 2:19 and we are raising money in various ways to support this fantastic cause. Our most popular is the “head shave”. So far we have grade 8 student Gavin M. and grade six teacher Mr. McLeod collecting pledges! Both have their mother’s permission and if your child wants to join in they will need a parent to sign off too! Everyone is invited to come to the gym Oct. 3! Donations are welcome and cheques can be made to Canadian Cancer Society/Cops for Cancer or donate online at cancer.ca/supportCCS
