Summer 2020 is here!  


2019/20 has been a complex and challenging school year but teachers have stepped up as they  always do!


Most of us eagerly look forward to summer holidays as a chance to take some time for ourselves and our families.

May you have many opportunities to do what you love to do, explore, hang out, rest, relax and rejuvenate.

As the school year ends we want to wish you all the best and trust that you will stay healthy and safe.  See you in September!
Michele and Mary

Town hall meetings on COVID-19 and return to school now online
Teachers turned out in record numbers over the past two evenings to engage in telephone town hall discussions about the June 1 partial return to work in the context of COVID-19. On Tuesday night we had 4,373 members on the call and on Thursday night we had an astonishing 8,547 members on the call!

Due to the enormous turnout, the system was overwhelmed and unfortunately many other members could not get on the call. Now both events have been posted on the BCTF website so that everyone can hear your questions and the answers from BCTF President Teri Mooring. Please go to the member portal here to listen in.

On the Thursday town hall Teri was joined by Dr. Andrew Miki, clinical psychologist and creator of the online mental health and wellness tool, Starling Minds. This tool is available free to all BCTF members here.
