Update on Seismic Mitigation Program

  Update on Seismic Mitigation Program
The VBE is committed to improving the safety of students and staff in the event of an earthquake.  In order to achieve this goal as quickly as possible, the Ministry of Education and the VBE have formed the Vancouver Project Office.  The goal of the Vancouver Project Office is to expedite all VBE seismic projects. This co-governed office will be staffed by professional personnel dedicated to overseeing the seismic projects in Vancouver schools.
 
David lloyd George is one of the 16 schools that was scheduled to begin the Project Definition Report (PDR) phase in January 2015.  Due to the complexity of seismic upgrade work and the extended time required to complete the previous round of schools, the Vancouver Board of Education (VBE) has decided to priorize the first 8 of these schools.   Consultants for these first eight projects have been retained and have commenced work on the Project Definition Report (PDR) phase of the project.  The work in the PDR phase requires approximately 6-12 months to examine all aspects of the project and to recommend the seismic option needed.  When the seismic option is decided on, the school community is informed and work proceeds to the next phases.   
Subject to available resources, the second group of schools identified in the Capital Plan are targeted to begin the PDR phase in the later part of 2015.
Please contact your school Principal if you have further questions.

Principal’s Message

It is hard to believe that we are a little more than a week away from the Winter Break.  It has been a very different start to the school year.  For the whole term, we have felt the pressure caused by the feeling of being behind where we would normally be at this time. There are the same things to do with less time to do them in.  The staff have worked collectively and individually to mitigate the reality of this situation and provide quality educational experiences for your children.  We will all be the beneficiaries of this hard work as we move into term two.
 
On behalf of the staff, I would like to wish you a joyful holiday!  Holidays are an important time to build memories with those who are most important in our lives: family and friends.  We hope this holiday season results in nothing less than treasured memories for you and your family.

DLG Community,
DLG Community,
Another school year has come to an end.  It has been filled with exciting learning opportunities of every imaginable description.  It is unfortunate that the end of the school year was under such unique circumstances.  Thank you for your patience as we have navigated through these difficult times.  I hope that an agreement can be reached soon so that we can be back to normal for the start of the new school year.
Please refer to the letter from Steve Cardwell, Superintendent of Schools.  You will find the PDF entitled ‘Parent Letter-June 24, 2014’ below.
Have a great summer!

Spring Has Sprung!
It is truly amazing how quickly time goes by especially when you are in a good place and are having fun.  This certainly characterizes my time here at David Lloyd George.  As I sit in my bright, sun flooded office listening to the children playing outside, I can't believe that in a few short days May will arrive and I will have been here for four months.  With every passing day I learn more about what makes this a special place for children to learn.
 
I hope that you were one of the lucky parents who were able to stop in and see the performances and presentations at the Acceptance Poetry Open House.  If you were not able to attend you missed another tremendous event that celebrates the important work that the staff and students have been involved in this year.  This work continues as an important focus.
 
One thing that is increasingly evident, as I spend more time here at DLG, is just how active and alive the school code of conduct is in all aspects of the students' experience at school.  This is such an important part of creating a safe and caring environment where students feel that they belong and where the can thrive.
 
I am excited about what is ahead in the final two months of the school year.  It will be packed with fun and engaging learning opportunities for the students.  Two of the exciting events on the horizon are the District Strings Concert, which I will be attending this evening, where I know our students will shine under the direction of Ms. Fong. I am also excited about the grade seven camp which takes place Thursday and Friday of next week.
 
Please feel free call or stop in and visit if you have any comments, questions or concerns.
 
Sincerely
Mike McEwan
Principal
