• Port Hardy Literacy Fair: Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019
4:30-7 p.m. at Gwa’Sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw School.

Celebrating January’s Family Literacy Week, The Mount Waddington Family Literacy Society is planning ocean-themed Literacy Fairs in Port Hardy and Port McNeill with Mother Goose Storytelling, Literacy Activities & Crafts, Snacks, Door Prizes, and a FREE BOOK for every child attending.
And we’re excited to have special guest The Marine Detective to present ‘Ocean Mysteries’ to increase our local ocean literacy.
Jackie Hildering is “The Marine Detective”, acclaimed marine educator and whale researcher. Join her to discover more of the beauty, fragility and mystery of our local marine neighbours. She will be sharing some of what she has learned from local marine life – from sea slugs to Humpback Whales! This will include a strong focus on helping children deduce why animals are designed the way they are through discussion of animals’ adaptations.

Fines Waived on Children’s Books at VIRL!

We get it.

Fines are a bummer, and no child should be held back from reading their favourite book! Plus, parents have enough on their plate.

As part of Family Literacy Week (January 20–27), we’re launching the news that your library is no longer fining for overdue children’s materials.

Family literacy week is an annual celebration of families spending time together reading, listening to stories, or engaging in digital literacy every day. And your library is the perfect place to get started!

Check out all the amazing programs, children’s materials and more below!

In Case Of Power Outage

In case of a power outage, please be assured that there are procedures in place for retention and release of students.
When the power goes out, learning still occurs. The building has enough natural light that the students are able to safely continue on with their day.
If the power remains out for a considerable amount of time, the superintendent of schools will then make the decision on whether or not to close the school and subsequently dismiss students.
If students are to be dismissed early, parents will be notified and consent will be granted before they are released from the building.
Thank you.


Nominations Are Now Open!


Lego Needed Please!

Leggo your Lego! If you have any Lego that your kiddos have outgrown, please consider donating them to the school for Project Based Learning, STEM Challenges, Rainy Days, etc. Thanks so much!
