Happy heart day Trafalgar families! We hope everyone had a wonderful Family Day long weekend and we LOVE to have you back! Some classes will be celebrating Valentine’s Day by exchanging valentines or sharing class treats. Please remember the school is a nut-free zone when sending treats to school for special events.

Grade 7 English Galiano Island Trip Fundraisers


The grade 7 English students have the opportunity to visit the Gulf Islands Film and Television school on Galiano Island in June.

Snack Bar

To help fundraise, the students will be running a snack bar from now until spring break. The snack bar will be set up under the covered area at recess. Most items will cost one dollar. So you can now send the kids to school with a loonie or toonie and skip packing that recess snack!

Silent Auction

The Silent Auction in support of the Galiano Island trip was launched electronically in the principal’s newsletter issued last Friday. Beginning tomorrow, you can also make bids on the bidding sheets in the main hall.
On Friday February 17th at 2 pm electronic bidding ends and the event goes live. Auction items will be available for viewing and bidders can make their bids in person until the auction ends at 7pm. There will also be a donation in exchange for a gift table.  Please come prepared to shop in support of Trafalgar students’ first filmmaking experience at the Gulf lsland’s Film and Television School.  Thanks to all who have donated and bid so far!

The Grade Seven Film School Committee thanks Trafalgar families for their support!

If you have some time to spare after drop off, please contact Cherie, the safe arrival coordinator, at trafalgarsafearrival@gmail.com to find out more about how you can help. Thank you!
