As you may have seen, news outlets are reporting an incident at the Houses of Parliament in London which has initiated a full counter-terrorism investigation.
Students and chaperones of our Caledonia Secondary School are in London today as part of a European School Field Trip. All students/chaperones are accounted for and are safe, and the students/chaperones are not at the affected sites.
School District staff is in contact with EF Educational Tours and chaperones as to the plans going forward noting that EF Educational Tours have also messaged families this morning.
In addition, School District staff is contacting families to share that all students are safe and that we will continue to monitor the situation. EF Educational Tours will maintain ongoing contact with families regarding any itinerary changes.

Wednesday, February 22nd is Day of Pink across British Columbia and Canada!
Join thousands of students and staff across British Columbia to show your support for anti-bullying initiatives: wear the official anti-bullying colour, pink!
Pink Day started in 2007 when two Nova Scotia high school students decided to create a “Sea of Pink” to support a grade 9 boy who was called homophobic names when he wore a pink shirt to school. See related story on CBC.ca website. This day is now celebrated right across Canada.
A sea of pink in schools and communities will show BC’s commitment to a safe and inclusive province that actively promotes respectful and kind behaviour among its citizens.
On February 22nd we encourage everyone to practice kindness. Together we can end bullying!
