Where Life and Learning Meet
What has PIE been up to? 🍁
Powell River Welcome Back Picnic
The sun shone brightly at the PR Welcome Back event at Willingdon. It was wonderful to
see so many smiling, happy faces! 🌞
Comox Valley Welcome Back at Selah Campground
The Comox Valley Welcome Back Picnic was a success! It was great to see so many familiar faces and to get a chance to meet so many of our new families. 😀

Interaction Days 👋
Police Station Visit 👮♂️
Powell River families enjoyed a tour of the police station during one of the Interaction Day events. Sergeant Swanson was super nice and gave a good tour of the detachment. Students saw a police boat, a quad, and a police car. Students were happy to be able to see inside the police car. We are happy to report that no one was arrested! 😇
Harvest Luncheon 🍴
Students in the Powell River blended classes prepared soup for the Harvest Luncheon. Students and staff were fortunate to enjoy two vegetable soups, grapes, pumpkin yam scones, homemade buns, pumpkin pie, banana bread, and veggies and dip. Yum! What a harvest feast, indeed! 🥣🌽🥕🍞🍇
Lake Park Society Field Trip ⛵
Fire Safety 🚒
Does your family have a fire safety plan? Why not spend some time together to create one!
K-2 Fall Programming 🎨
Powell River K-2 programing began this month at Oceanview Education Centre. Students have been enjoying thematic literacy activities and sports in the gym. There is one more session in November.
Fiona learned to use chopsticks to pick up her "food"!
Kaiya and Gracie share a laugh while practicing a new skill!
Elias and Nathan experiment with playdough. Looks like they made some yummy dishes!
Learners used finger paint to create increasingly longer caterpillars.
Using balloons and paint, Kaiya and friends created caterpillar art!
This artwork was inspired by Eric Carle's artwork in the famous book The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
