Wednesday, June 28th is Beach Day! Students and staff will be walking th7JB3QE31down to the Esquimalt Lagoon; leaving the school at 9:30am.  Please ensure your students are prepared with hat, water, sunscreen, towel etc.  NO BATHING SUITS PLEASE. We will have lifeguards on duty, however there is no swimming. Students should bring a drink and other snacks for lunch as they will be there for the day.

Staff and students will start making their way back to the school at 1:45.  If you or another adult are picking up your student from the beach please ensure they are signed out with their classroom teacher;  a signed beach day form should be sent back to the school prior to beach day so the teacher is aware of the early departure.

Any parents that may be helping teachers/classes with transportation of students/supplies to and from the beach will have been communicated to directly by the teacher. Parents participating that day will need to have a valid CRC in the office.

Beach day is one of our favorite days as a school.  We know families like to come as well.  Unfortunately we do not have the man power and resources to look after children who are not Wishart students – we are only responsible for the safety and security of our students.  We ask that parents are extra vigilant of younger children who are not yet part of our school. We wouldn’t want an older student to knock in to a toddler while playing football or something on the beach.


The Grade 5 recognition ceremony will be taking place in the school thYNM054XJgymnasium at 1:00pm on June 26th.  Parents, Grandparents and siblings are welcome to attend.
