The Grade 7 winners tied at 122, were Julian Lee and Declan Christensen and a close second tie at 118 were Dhuvariga Senthil and Owen Watson.

Dress and Appearance Reminder

As summer is approaching, please be reminded that SCS is a welcoming, inclusive, and safe learning environment; students and staff are expected to dress professionally and appropriately for academic study and school related activities.

Thank you for your help and attention with this.

Bike Racks

If you ride your bike to school, use the bike racks in the North Field to lock up your bike.

Please do not use the poles or trees at the front or sides of the school.

Thank you!

SCA Soars

The SCA Secondary School Council needs your help in recognizing school staff who do an outstanding job with our students.

Please use this Google Form to submit your acknowledgement.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Remember to bring your school tools!

As we approach a busy exam season, please remind your child to bring:
  • personal electronic device
  • charging cord

We do have some extras here in the office, but very few and a habit is forming of students coming here for resources they should have. Unfortunately, if we run out, we're out, and on exam day this could greatly hinder the student.

Thank you for your efforts on reminding your student to bring what they need for assignments and exams.

Multicultural Day 2023

Wednesday May 31, 2023 is Multicultural Day at our school. As stated in an earlier Eagle's Eye, this year we are trying something new, it will be an after-school event (tentatively 4-7pm).

We are still looking for enthusiastic parents, grandparents, etc. to donate food and drinks. We are looking for foods from as many cultures/countries as could be represented at SCA. This is going to be a COSTCO style tasting set up.

If you are interested in volunteering a cultural/country dish/drink for our special day or have any questions, please contact Mr. Botchey at symonds.botchey@eips.ca.

More details about the event will be coming in May. Thanks to all the parents who have been helping to plan this event behind the scenes.

Summer School Registration is Open!

Foundations in Industry Workplace Safety Course

The Foundations in Industry Workplace Safety course is designed to provide students with a foundational understanding and awareness of the legislative requirements and responsibilities under the following eight industry standard safety courses. This includes:

  • Construction Safety Training (CSTS2020)
  • Confined Space
  • Detection and Control of Flammable Substances
  • Fall Protection Awareness
  • Ground Disturbance
  • H2S Alive
  • Transportation of Dangerous Goods
  • WHMIS 2015

This course is designed to help students understand and complete the rigors of attaining certification. Students will receive industry level certification for the above courses, in addition to 5 30-level CTS credits and be ready to enter the industry workplace upon completion. As this course is designed to provide a larger understanding of industry related safety, certification under each of the eight areas will not be provided until completion of the entire course. This course includes both an online component and practical training sessions. Students must participate in all of the off-site practical training sessions. The course will be held at Bev Facey from July 4-14 from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Visit the Summer School Website to register.


  • HCS3000 - Workplace Safety Systems
  • Minimum 16yrs of age

This is an excellent opportunity for students to earn credentials that would cost them approximately $800 if they were to do it on their own. The ideal student is finishing grade 11 or 12 and is interested in working in industry or in pursuing opportunities in the RAP program.
