    BC Universities and Colleges Hosting a Free Public Information Night in Kamloops
    by Jennifer Lincoln - Monday, 5 October 2015, 8:29 AM

    Fourteen BC universities and colleges will be in attendance at a free public information event in Kamloops again this fall. The PSI-BC event takes place on Thursday, Oct. 8th from 7-9pm in the TRU House of Learning - Barber Centre

    While post-secondary reps have visited high schools in Kamloops and around the province for many years, the school-hour schedule has traditionally made it difficult for parents to participate in the conversation. This event will include a presentation focused on helping parents better understand the many post-secondary options and paths for students in BC, followed by a fair for attendees to interact directly with reps from all 14 institutions attending the event.

    Attending institutions: Canadian Forces – RMC; Capilano U; Kwantlen Polytechnic U; Langara College; NVIT; Okanagan College; Quest U; SFU; TRU; TWU; UBC; UNBC; UVIC; and VIU.

    Google Apps for Education Permission Forms
    by Tonya Perry - Monday, 21 September 2015, 9:57 AM

    Google Apps for Education (GAFE) is an Internet-based resource that utilizes web access and cloud storage. The Kamloops/Thompson School District can provide students with a district-managed Google Apps for Education account. This provides students with a powerful collection of online collaboration and productivity tools, as well as unlimited online file storage space to be used for educational purposes. Each student will have their own secure login and password to access their account.


    In order for students to use GAFE, the School District needs to provide Google with students’ names, schools and grade levels, and for clarity no other personal information.  The School District is required to obtain the consent of students and their custodial parents before providing this personal information, as required by the British Columbia School Act and Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.  In accordance with these Acts, students and custodial parents may provide consent or decline to consent (in which case the student will not be able to use GAFE), and may provide a further written response.


    Forms were sent home on Friday of last week. Please return these forms as soon as possible. If you require an addition form, you can print one from here or your child can pick up another form from the library.
