STUDENT LEARNING SURVEY (previously known as Satisfaction Survey)

The BC Ministry of Education Satisfaction Surveys will again be administered province wide to grade 4 & 7 students, their parents and school staff members.  Completion of the survey is online and voluntary for parents, taking only 5 to 10 minutes to complete.  A letter will be sent home to parents of Grade 4 & 7 students early next week containing a logon number. Access to the e-survey is simple and secure and you are able to use any computer with Internet access to complete it. The online version of the Satisfaction Survey can be accessed at:  and will be open until May 26th, 2017. 

I encourage you to participate in the survey, as the results are important in helping us identify current strengths and determine areas on which we can focus for improvement. Please feel free to contact the school if you did not receive a logon  number, we will be happy to provide one for you.  For additional information please click here: 2017 Student Learning Survey General Information.pdf2017 Student Learning Survey General Information.pdf
