National Bullying Prevention Month

BULLYING is intentional aggressive behaviour,repeated over time that involves an imbalance of power. It can be physical, verbal, relational or social and includes cyberbullying. Bullying and bullying-type behaviour is not cool. So, what is cool? Kindness. Be kind to one another. And if you SEE SOMETHING? SAY SOMETHING. Be an upstander. Monday, October 3rd, is the Eighth

PFC Enrichment Programs

If your student has signed up for more than one enrichment program, please read these important FAQs .

PFC guidelines on participation in multiple enrichment programs. 
Due to the overwhelming number of students who want to join enrichment programs, and the limited number of spaces available, students who meet the qualifications for more than one enrichment program may be asked by the PFC Enrichment Committee to select their top choice and open a space for another student if there are waiting lists in some programs. This does not apply to programs that do not have a waiting list.

Please visit the PFC Enrichment website for sign up information and important updates about the following enrichment programs:
