The Committee on Outreach, Diversity, and Equity at UBC, in partnership with SAP, is pleased to be offering GIRLsmarts4tech workshops for the fifteenth year.
GIRLsmarts4tech workshops encourage young women in grade 7 to become interested in technology, mathematics and sciences.
For grade 7 girls, SAP will be offering two full-day workshops on Saturday, October 27, 2018 and Saturday, February 9, 2019 . Please note that both workshops will cover the same topics. We are also offering a Parent Education Workshop on the same day as the grade 7 workshop consisting of a panel discussing how parents can encourage girls in tech.
See the flier for more information. Space is limited and will be filled on a first-come first-served basis so sign up today.
Digging to Help the Community – Division 10
A big thank you to the students of Div 10 and M Carrier for their work in moving sand from our field sand pits so that it can be enjoyed by students in an alternate location. Div 10 is quite industrious, and we appreciate their efforts! The PAC will be sending out an email to ask families who might have extra, non-broken or cracked sand toys such as small shovels and small containers that they no longer use to donate them to the school – there is a box in the foyer for this purpose.
Tennyson 2020 Committee is looking for Volunteers!
Did you know that there is a PAC-sponsored committee that liaises with our admin team and staff regarding construction of our new school and grounds? The role of this committee is to work together to solve challenges, to lend a hand when help is needed, and to liaise with the PAC on future spending in regards to the new buildings. Some examples of things that the committee might engage in: helping to create play/social opportunities for students when the footprint of our site is temporarily reduced (eg. help the school to build a bank of art supplies and games, sandboxes etc.), study options for new playgrounds, and discuss with staff options for technology, specialized items, and other “things” for the new building, both at initial occupancy and to establish plans for the future. The school encourages interested parents to contact email@example.com . We appreciate the help and support of our fantastic parents!
Here is some important information from the organizers:
No tents are to be set up near the Marshalling area or the start and finish lines – with thousands of runners these areas are very congested and are now a safety issue. As discussed at the organizational meeting, we will continue to refine our procedures and communication in the marshalling area and start line. The meet organizing committee is tweaking the procedures to address the safety concerns and chaotic energy that is present at the marshalling and starting areas. We will need your assistance to ensure that EVERYONE (runners, staff and parents) are helping us to ensure that everything runs in a smooth, orderly and safe
ONLY participants will be permitted in the marshalling area and on the course – please let your parents know that we will not allow them near or at the starting line. All athletes should have run in your zone meets so the athletes should feel comfortable running in a large race. If there are concerns, then maybe the younger athletes can be paired up with a ‘buddy’ and they can run together.
All spectators (adults and children) must watch the races from outside the course boundaries (we have areas roped off for the SAFETY of the runners and the meet officials). We have had minor accidents and close misses when people do not pay attention to the course boundaries - please let’s do our part to ensure that everyone stays off the course. I know we all get excited to see our children/students participate in events like this but our rules are meant for the safety of all students.
We would strongly encourage all schools to ask parents/spectators to leave their dogs at home. If this is not possible then, ALL pets must be under control and leashed and away from any course boundaries including marshalling, start and finish lines.
No parents in the finish line area – they must wait outside the roped area to collect/congratulate or take photos of their runners. Anyone who has been to previous meets will know that the finish area is a constant wave of runners from the first race to the last. Extra bodies in the area is once again deemed a safety issue.
First Aid will be available in the finish area BUT all schools are asked to bring their own first aid kits as well. Please ensure that your students and helpers know where and how to access your first aid supplies.
Washroom facilities are available in the park facility on the south side of the lake. Additional porta potties will also be on site near the caretaker’s house.
All vehicles should be legally parked in the parking lots or on the streets – at past events, vehicles have been ticketed and/or towed.
First race starts at 1:00 pm – subsequent races are every 8 minutes. Times are approximate, spectators should error on side of caution if they are trying to estimate what time their child is running. Please refer to the race order which can be found in the attached document.
Have a fantastic and fun race!
