A thousand apologies for the long wait! Photos from the Juan de Fuca trip by then-grade 11s (now grade 12) are now online! They have been inserted chronologically behind the Strathcona 2018 photos, but at long last, here’s all the fun they had back in May 2018! Photo credits to Mr. M. Wolfe and Mr. B. Lee.
The full album of Strathcona photos is now ready for viewing! Contributors Mr. B. Lee and Mr. M. Wolfe have a wealth of pictures to share, capturing some truly Mini School moments. See Photos for more!
The following items were recovered after the recent trip to Strathcona Park Lodge. If you recognize the following items, please see Mr. M. Wolfe before Friday, September 28th.
Captain America sock
Wonder women socks
Blue Air Park socks

Regarding Mini School Fees, if you have signed up with School Cash Online, you will have received notification of outstanding fees. The current fee program does this automatically. Please disregard the message regarding Mini School Program fee.
Your child’s student account will show an outstanding amount of $400 at this time. Please disregard this balance outstanding as it will be resolved in time. Here is what has happened and what you may expect:
$500 check submitted in June was deposited in July
$400 check submitted for September has now been deposited
$400 check dated for January will be posted to the accounts in January and the outstanding balance will be resolved to zero at that time
If you have a preference to pay online before January, please do so at your option and I would be more than happy to return your check installment after the payment has been made to School Cash.
In the meanwhile, you may receive notifications for other outstanding fees, such as Basic School Fee, Yearbook (optional), workbooks or any field trips that may be planned for this semester. These notices will require your attention.
Thank you for your patience as we work with our new fee program.

Found! A lens for a Canon camera was found in room 38 B at Strathcona Park Lodge. If this is yours, please see Ms. T. Hunt to make arrangements for return.
Notice to parents regarding records of Mini School fee payment in MyEd B.C.
Due to a recent switch in fee program/accounting software, records of Mini School Program Fee and payments are not currently being shown in School Cash On-Line. Rest assured that submitted checks have been deposited and fees have been paid. If there is an issue with fee payment for Mini School, we will contact you directly. Records for Mini School fee payment should appear in School Cash On-Line records some time this fall. Thank you for your understanding while we sort out this matter.
